Lucas transmission, stop leak. How does it compare? If not safe, what could I use to help my transmission along? 3 tips for transmission care, and repair avoidance.

Lucas transmission, stop leak.

Some say Lucas is OK. In a check of over 100 auto repair garages, none of the auto repair garages use or recommended Lucas. Why mechanics don't like Lucas. How does Lucas stop leaks compare to other brands?

Leaks are caused by heat, acids, and wear. Acids shrinks the seals the most.
:Causing the fluid to seep past the seal.
Causing the oil to seep past the seal.
Causing the coolant to seep into the motors oil.

    Remove the acids. This relaxes or conditions the seal, gives it a slight swell, thereby stopping the leak.
Seal conditioner stop leaks better than solvent stop leaks.

Tip 3 Since leaks are caused by acid loaded sludge residues and high heat, its best to remove the residues with a special cleaner and conditioners.

The 3 products pictured below, from Mega Power work as a treatment to clean, and friction modify - a wear reducer, and stops leaks. It also solves shifting problems, and reduces high temperatures, putting off the need for repair, many times - and provides longer transmission life.

Transmission stop leak treatment by Mega Power

"Stop leak brands using solvents - such as the Lucas brand, to swell seals rubbery parts. There is no control. This idea is questionable." Solvents swell seals too much. Making them to solf.
