Default "Lucas Transmission Fix" for worn auto trans?



Has anyone tried this fluid?
Is this stuff any good?

NOTHING replaces a good mechanic. If your transmission is slipping, TAKE
YOUR CAR TO A SHOP IMMEDIATELY. Problems caught early can usually be fixed
for hundreds if not thousands less than using transmission "fix" fluids and
waiting till your tranny dies, which WILL happen.

Thanks for the heads up Evan.

I was thinking it is just getting worn and there is nothing mechanical that
can be done. The car has 170+k on it.

At 130k, right after I bought it, I had the tranny flushed and refilled at
the Acura dealer with Honda fluid, because I drained it and put DexronII in
by mistake.

Just lookin to give it few more miles. It's not that bad now. It doesn't
slip and no performance drop. Just a slight clunking during shifting.

You'd probably notice many good things just by changing the fluid again.
I'm not sure what year your car is, but up through 94 the change interval
was 30k (and 15k if you actually drive the car).
