A=automatic T=transmission and F=fluid. I use ATF for many. things. Penetrating oil in a pumper oil can, in gas at 1 quart to 5 gal of gas. In engines that have sat a longtime to free up sticking rings and valves etc. Cheaper then PB blaster or other such stuff plus cleans out carbon and frees up stick parts.

That's one to keep in mind. Probably the detergents again, cleaning the injectors out.

I throw a cup or two of ATF into the fuel tank every now and then. Seems to make it run better on the next tank of fuel. My 930 will slobber unturned diesel if it is used for too long on light duties. After some ATF and some hard work, like cultivating all afternoon, it will stop slobbering and run far stronger. Must have some effect on the injectors, I was given this tip by a old diesel mechanic, and have done it many times. It will cause the tractor to smoke a bit more , but that will clear up with the next tank of fuel .

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeAutomatic Transmission Fluid is often used to soak old rusted pistons/rings, sort of like penetrating oil. I have used it as an additive to the engine oil to help clean out old sludge deposits, just change your oil and replace one quart with ATF, work it lightly for an hour or so, and change it again. It has lots of detergents in it.
