Testimonial: "I have considered that the engine is worn out, but it burns little oil and idles/run smoothly ... I guess a compression test on each cylinder would tell me a lot more."

Your dip stick tube is your fill tube for your transmission . Make sure your transmission oil is at opperating temp before servicing some instructions are written on the dip stick , Use a small funnel , Add a little at a time (cup). Use the proper fluid , check regularly

SOURCE: White smoke exhaust
White smoke is caused by coolant or water coming out the tail pipe. There is a chance that the white smoke was caused by water splashing up from a puddle onto the exhaust pipe. Keep an eye on the coolant level in the radiator in any event. If its less then there leak coolant leak in the car engine which is causing this problem....

SOURCE: pinion seal leaking
check your rear diff vent if pluged clean it out and clean up the pinion seal.sometimes if the leak is caused by pluged vent and has not been leaking long once vent is clean sometimes the leak will stop.there is not a specific torque amount because it is rotational torque(how hard to turn pinion).there is a crush sleve on the pinion and if torqued too tight or too loose brg preload will be wrong and brg damage could result.mark and remove drive shaft.remove rear wheels,brakes,axles.so when turning pinion you dont have any drag from brakes or axles.mark the position of the yoke on the pinion.remove yoke,replace seal,reinstall yoke be sure to replace pinion nut.tighten nut until it takes the exact same amount of force to turn pinion as before taking original pinion nut off.hope this helps.

SOURCE: DIRTY TRANSMISSION OIL .
yes- the computer is picking up a problem in the transmission [which has about 20+ codes of its own]trans fluid is a reddish burgundy color like power steering fluid when brown means burnt something slipping-or overheating- or clogged filter -change fluid and filter can b an easy fix if caught in time
