Re: Tranny oil change using the return line

oh and SYNTHETIC! more temp stable = doesnt over thin hot and doesnt turn thick when cold .. just guessing pumping thick oil is way more labor intensive than motor oil which costs MPGs

Re: Tranny oil change using the return line

Depends on the vehicle. Many torque converters can only be completely drained by a complicated procedure that can only be done once, as it involves drilling a hole in the converter, and filling the hole with a rivet.

Re: Tranny oil change using the return line

Well, guys. I had to have the Stratus put into the shop to fix a botched timing service job, and while they were in there I had them just do another pan drop/filter change. I had the mechanic use Valvoline ATF+4, 4 Quarts, and I also put in a bottle of Lubegard Red to bring it up to the correct level. I have heard good things about this product and I'm giving it a shot to see if it will help my with the symptoms I was experiencing. Also, since the Stratus isn't my DD anymore, I will be sure to change the fluid every 2-3 years instead of waiting on the mileage.

The bottom line...additives aren't necessarily good.
