OKAY, I"m as gun shy and a non believer as far as anybody regarding "Snake Oil" HOWEVER I gotta share this FWIW

On two different cars mind you I had an auto tranny that started slipping or got loosey goosey between shifts or wouldnt shift into high at all or only maybe after it warmed up etc

Sooooooo I buy and pour in a can of Lucas Tranny Treatment, drove them maybe 50 miles AND THEY BOTH STARTED WORKING N SHIFTING FINE AFTER THAT FOR AS LONG AS I DROVE THEM (several k miles)

Okay dont have a calf now or argue with me cuz ALL IM SAYING IS THATS WHAT HAPPENED TO TWO CARS OF MINE while it may not happen for you or anyone ever again, but it did work for me at least buttttttttt ONLY LUCAS I tried other brands over the years that did NOTHING GRRRRRRR

Now change fluid n filter etc as you wish and if that dont help and you wanna try Lucas ITS YOUR OWN MONEY AND CHOICE AND RISK althugh the above is what happened to me, thats all I can say

One never knows what will happen. About 15 yrs ago I had a tired chevy with a 700R4 slipping. Put in a can of Sea Foam trans treatment and two weeks later the trans failed. The tranny was already weak and I doubt the snake did anything but clean out some needed sludge, so I don't blame it.

That stuff works by 'swelling' the seals.

It doesn't cure anything and if used when something else is the culprit will actually cause a failure sooner or later because of the damage to the seals.

If you've ever seen rubber components dropped in carb cleaner, that is the effect; just not as drastic or quick.
