Use DeX 6 for a pretty upgrade, otherwise a quality DeX 3 will be fine. Never ever put noþeles in a infection that is no transmission fluid. No additives... Ever. I own/operate a transmission shop and have had many units on mine bench that finished up there since of Lucas and other additives. LubeGard is the just brand the is "OK" and only when required. (Ie: friction full when required for certain trans)
Not a pan of additive at all. They usually leave a movie behind. Some make the liquid lubricating characteristics go south and you finish up through alot of bad bushing surfaces. The old institution transmission seal swellers offer no genuine purpose. Lip seals space made of different material now and also do no harden prefer the larger seals. Many transmissions are failing early to part failure, clutch volume or hydraulics circuit wear. The only additive I have actually seen no real ill effects with is Lucas.As much as fluid goes ns tell my customers the Dexron III is factory fill top top 4L60E until 2006. They climate made a change to Dexron VI. The full synthetic fluid will give far better cold driveabilty and it can withstand higher temperatures longer. That is an ext stable end the entire operating heat variety than it"s Dexron III predecessor.
