Have you ever...................

Im sittin here just thinking and playin online and had a question for EVERYONE!

Has anyone ever used the stop slip or some sort of additive in there trans to keep it from slipping?

If so what did you use and tell us how it worked!

I never have used the stuff but just curious as you see a ton of it at the parts house when you go up there.

All any of those additives do is swell the seals and o-rings and the friction material on the clutches. That is why you get a little extra before the let loose. They do what they are designed to do for a trans with problems but I wouldn't recommend using them in a good trans.

When my tranny started to go I put half a bottle of the lucas stuff in it and the other half in my uncles full size chevy blazer that had a slipping 4l60e, my tranny went out completely the next day and his first lost 2nd and od then it lost all forward gears in less than a week. I'm NEVER putting that stuff in ANYTHING again.

There is only 1 additive to use. Lubeguard. It doesen't fix anything, just makes the fluid do a better job.
