Hey Scotty can you clear up usage of these multi vehicle fluids? I would really like to use full synthetic dex vi in my 4l60e but it’s hard to find. However it’s really easy to find multi vehicle full synthetic but I’ve heard since these friction modifiers are very specific it could harm it or get harder shifts. Also what are your thoughts on the seal conditioners found in fluids like valvoline max life? I hear over time they can actually make stuff worse.

My 2000 Dodge ram magnum 3500 5.9 v8, it has shifting problems. It'll shift fine at one point then it won't come out of first. Could it be a dirty filter or the governor solenoid and pressure sensor? It also has the external cooler on it that causes the hose to blow off. Is the cooler clogged as well? Another also, the check engine light doesn't come, so I can't check for codes...

Scotty, here's a good one for ya. I know you love Dodge Neons... mine's an 05 with the 40TE, the transmission shifts relatively fine, but 3 & 1 (below D) do absolutely nothing. I can start it, put it in 1 and get on the highway, it's no different in 3 or D. My 2011 Ranger shifts weirdly too... from 3 to 4 it's like it locks the converter in 3, then shifts to 4 and unlocks it, causing a sluggish slipping feeling. I hate automatics... hate them!

I got a 2012 V6 mustang auto, when giving it gas from a stop it kinda clunks and delays, and then from 1st to 2nd it jerks forward. Not sure if this is slipping or something else. Took it to 2 shops and both said it was fine, no codes and apparently the internals were fine and clean, I also had the fluid changed and the problem persists. Really don't know what to do at this point.

My f150 has 200k+ miles on it. Not sure if the previous owner ever changed the transmission fluid before or not. It has delayed shifting and sometimes when it's cold it hard shifts. Would it be a good idea to change the fluid and filter? Asking because I've also heard that you're not supposed to change high mileage transmission fluid if its never been changed. Thoughts? Thanks in advance! Love you channel!

Got a question good sir! Been chasing down a shifting bug in my 94 f150 5.0 4x4. It has an e4od that's new in it with less than 100 miles. Extremely delayed first to second gear shift. I was thinking shift solenoid or maybe one of the valve springs. Fluid level is at ideal level?? I know these trucks from that year have finicky transmissions any help or ideas are appreciated this was my first truck I bought after I got stationed in south Carolina so it will be with me til they bury me in it.

Ford Explorer 1995 automatic transmission has been repaired at a local transmission shop in Seattle. My mobile mechanic reinstalled and the fluid will not go in. Only one gallon loads and that's it. I hear the mechanic may have stacked the pump.He insists he didn't. I have changed the filter. What are other reasons a "rebuilt" or partially rebuilt transmission would not allow all fluid in?

Pity they cut out fitting converter drain plugs years ago, means you may have to do a second [or more] drains to get the dirty old fluid out, have this problem with a 95 Falcon down under, occasionally goes CLAP when grabbing the next gear, not sure how long it will last.

Hi great info! I have a 2010 Dodge Grand Caravan, it’s a close system. It drives but won’t go into the next gear, just high revs at 30 mph. It’s a close system so I had to find a hack to check the trans oil levels, but still having difficulty determining if it it’s still low. ( I added a quart and it worked at first but as soon as I resumed from a red light it stops shifting .

Hey Scotty, my Honda Accord's transmission has been upshifting from 1st to 2nd and 2nd to 3rd at 3000rpm, which is quite late since before the rebuild, it upshifted gears at 2000rpm. The mechanic that rebuilt my transmission says that it will take time for the computer to adapt to my driving style and will start shifting normally soon. Afterwards, he said that 3000rpm upshifts are completely normal. Furthermore, I can feel that the downshifts are harder after the rebuild. Should I be worried?

Code p1811. Just by changing the fluid and filter won’t solve that problem. I had a Buick with that code and the transmission would shift smooth until it reached operating temp. Then it jerked very violently into 2nd and 3rd. 3 different transmission shops informed me that the only way to fix that problem is to replace the pressure control sensor. Had that replaced and needless to say my problems were gone. -2005 Buick Lesabre custom.

Should we replace the transmission filter and add new transmission oil or can we just put some Lucas Oil transmission fix on it?
