I squeezed underneath the car very easily, and cracked open the fill plug with the breaker bar. Piece of cake.

However, I was startled to find that the fluid (presumably factory fill unless somehow the lady changed it..doubtful) looked like new.

I checked it and put it on paper, was a perfect honey color like new XO fluid. So im wondering....do I continue with the fluid change as most of the darkness and particles has gravitated to the bottom and I only saw the very top nice fluid?

Or do I return the red line fluid and assume that its still ok?
Did you drive around (warm up the oil) first? If so, leave it alone
