I'm sorry to answer you this but, there is not silver metallic fluids in a car normally. and the main reason you find metallic fluids in a car is because the fluid is full of metallic dust due to excessive wear to a mechanical part, could be the transmission that has damaged gears or the engine oil become metallic if the main bearings are finish
