Thanks Mike and sorry about that.

Soft ride, Thanks for that info. I am thinking that also, but in the new year. It'* not shifting hard, almost barely a jerk right now. So will wait until spring to get that done. For 100 investment for all, is better then rebuilding a new tranny, or buying a used one with who knows what'* going on with it.

So this sea foam stuff, how does that work? goes into the new fluid? or it'* a flush. Never heard of it.

Thanks for all your help, great tips.

Joanne, ya it is just an additive to the trans fluid, that works while you drive.
Here is a link and info to review about the Trans Tune. About $10 a can....works well!

Ok, good. Same for the motor treatment?
I read up on it, and everyone gives good reviews for it and I like how you don't have to change out the fluid.
Thank you for the product. Will try to hunt some down this week and see what happens.

If you use a good quality oil & filter, and change the oil at factory recommended intervals, there should be no need to add any motor oil cleaners/treatments.
I recently had my valve covers off at 100k miles to replace the gaskets, clean as a whistle in there!
When I went all the way down to replace the Lower intake manifold it was clean in there too!
I will admit though that I do use Chevron Techron Concentrate Plus available at wall mart, which is a very good fuel injector and back side of valve cleaner. 1 oz per gallon mixture in the fuel.
I then hit the highway for a good boogie. My Buick likes that!
