Is Lucas transmission additive any better than other brands?
In time, all engines and transmission misbehave in some way.
Typically, internal heat from friction weakens the oil lube.More friction, more oil breakdown, more sludge develops.As you can imagine those negatives deter shift and performance.
This may become the time for an additive. Not an overhaul.
After trying Lucas and other brands to help end my customers transmission problems, I settled on a special kind of "service treatment" that works well.
This treatment, Mega Power Transmission Service #RS3, seems to clean, free, smooth, and coat gears, bearings, shafts, various o-rings, and such to restoretransmission shifting. It does so with the 3 products it has.
The service part works like this: Their MP Cleaner Conditioner goes into the dirty fluid for 5 to 10 minutes while the motor runs at idle, in neutral.Then its all drained out and replace with new.
Along with the new fluid, two conditioners included, go in with the new fluid. Driving a few miles seems to smooth shifts, end leak, even stop "converter chatter" - which occurs around 40 mph.
Those customers that tow with their car or truck always praise this service.
That because their cars usually have a temperature gauge showing how hot the transmission fluid is. Heat is a transmission killer - so, they keep and eye on the temperature.
This product drops the temperature - or rather, now can keep it from rising.
Ending friction ends hi-temperatures friction causes. It also ends shift hang ups.
In my 90 Astro, I figure this service product help my transmission go another 100,000 miles - now at 268,257 miles. I serviced it with this product when it started to slip and miss a gear -which ended in a few miles after performing the service.
