The truck was clearly dripping engine coolant, not transmission fluid! A mid 90s Chev like that would have a 4l60E automatic transmission which contains a red Mecron/Dextron III hydraulic fluid!

Well if the only "glaring problem" you can find, has to do with the colour of transmission fluid, then well done Writers! ;)

Then the writers did a wonderful job. Maybe it was a mistake and you have to use your "imagination".

While I wouldn't call it a glaring problem, I certainly understand where you're coming from. Mistakes like that, even ones that most people wouldn't notice, can take you right out of the story. It's happened to me many times.

Kudos for having such a keen eye, though. :)

Well it is an alternate universe, maybe they used a different color transmission fluid in it, and that's why it was divergent from ours.

Good catch! Not that I would have known it. ;)

LOL ...I guess I wasn't paying close enough attention.

They could have said transmission fluid but my mind heard radiator coolant...which in my neck of the woods is a florescent green.

from transcript:
CRIME SCENE GUY: We've got radiator fluid down here. (He points to a wet patch on the ground.) Looks like the vehicle has a leak.


DonĀ“t se no glaring problem...

Have we all agreed that the guy said Radiator Fluid?

Absolutely not. In all the time I have spent (about 10 minutes when I changed a brake light) working on vehicles and vehicular...stuff...I know conclusively that it was blinker fluid running down the over-head posiquad adjuster.

It couldn't have been anything else.








Just in case some didn't get it I was trying to be funny, sometimes I don't hit the mark.

Rewatched it today. The cop said "radiator fluid." Looked like radiator fluid to me (and yes, I do know what radiator fluid looks like).

Well, the stuff leaking out of my mom's car is red, so it must be an error. ;)

alright so the guy said radiator fluid. but what does he know? he only plays a crime scene investigator on a TV show. I play a know it all on the internet, and I say it was blinker fluid!

There's paying attention to detail. And then there's this thread ;)

And then there are also fans to delve too deep into the colour of radiator fluid. ;)

you can never delve too deep in the knowledge of the radiator fluid

Engine coolant does come in different colors - in this Reality. Mopar has an orange/pinkish colored coolant used in (some of) the new vehicles. I think some of the other makes are following suit. Not sure the specifics of each, but it's not recommended to mix the blends.

Like a Wraith would know not to mix blends. lol

O.o yeah radiatorfluid goes pretty far XD I don't even know what it looks like.

Anyway, I would have liked to see Spike more Spike and less "human." He doesn't look so well as a human.
