Which car are we talking about?  Certainly not 91 200q20v -- No such animal
with automatic tranny.

Year and model?  Older 5000, 200 turbo, and 100's had problems with tranny
fluid and diff fluid mixing.  Service bulletin required different fluid
fill -Don't exactly remember.  At the very least I would have both diff
fluid and tranny fluid changed pronto by a competent shop.
