Can Someone Use Transmission fluid As Oil?

Can Someone Use Transmission fluid As Oil?

Answer:

NO!!! Transmission fluid does not have the same lubricating qualities as engine oil. Adding it to an engine will quickly destroy the bearings! I have heard of pouring transmission fluid down the carb while the engine is running to free stuck valves, but I wouldn't recommend it. JMHO.
no but you can add a little to the oil with out hurting anything no more than 1 qt transmission fluid to 3 qt oil
Only use it as emergency, You can use 1 qt to help lifters free them up. Before an oil change 1 qt run for 30 Min's then change oil. 15 yrs of auto mechanic work seen and done this many times.
