[quote="willwren"]I've HEARD, but never experienced......that the fully synthetic trans fluid is a bad idea on higher-mileage transmissions that may have already lost too much friction material on the bands. It'* too slippery. That'* enough of a warning for me to stay away from it.quote]
This was enough to keep me from trying syn. ATF.
I just had my xmission fluid changed on my 01 ssei with 22k, I had an Intense shift kit installed. When my pan was dropped I was amazed to find a fair amount of sludge on the bottom of the pan and the magnet was filthy.
Wiped everything down and cleaned the gasket too. Also another thing that made me go
was that one of the bolts holding the acumulator cover 3/4 in, un threaded
Factory like that from GM.
Also threw in a new tranny filter that cam supplied with the intense kit for $129. Also included 8 page full color directions. Pretty darn easy, all nuts and bolts and tranny fluid everywhere.
Shifting much firmer now. Going to get a cooler put on also before the summer.
