1. Is it true that the power steering fluid and transmission fluid are connected together in the same black reservoir on the driver side?
No. Transmission fluid is a separate system. There is a transmission fluid cooler but they never mix. The only way to check level is to jack the car on 4 stands and remove the filling plug. Check or search forum for threads.
