Default Auto Transmission Treatments

Hey again guys. Well my trans is at 153k (along with my engine) in miles and I'm open to anything that can help it keep going. I was at the auto store the other day and noticed that Slick 50 made both an auto trans treatment and a high mileage auto trans treatment. Both were about the same price and the high mileage one came with a 30 thousand mile warranty (for all trans under 100,000 miles). So i was wondering, Has anyone tried this or other treatments for their trans? Hows it work? Anyone think there is some danger involved in using these?

I would not recommend that you don't add this "snake oil" to your transmission. If you did and something went wrong, the makers of Slick 50 would probably not even refund the purchase price of the product. Their warranty is pretty shallow in my book.
If their'* nothing wrong with the transmission, just change its oil and filter. You must be something right to have over 150K on the original trans.

I recently just used the Slick 50 Transmission Fluid Additive. It seems to shift better than before, but then again maybe i'm just driving it differently since I put it in. And my transmission has alot more miles than yours and it seems to be going strong.
