I prefer Max;life as it meets Dex6 spec but some like the Dex6 name on the bottle or worried about warranty work.

I have used Maxlife ATF in piles of vehicles from GM, Ford, Honda, Toyota, Hyundai, etc... with no problems.


Also the whole "don't change fluid in old trans..." is a bad wives tail. It came around as people would have problems with their transmissions and change the fluid. Then the trans would fail and they would blame the fluid change. The problem is the transmission was already acting up so the fluid change did not kill it, it was already dying.

I recommend changing your fluid every 30-50k at least. I do it every 33k so that way it falls on the 100k service each time when the coolant, plugs, etc... are generally due.

Correct, that's why you are supposed to drain and fill instead of flushing.

I bought the one with Amazon as seller. This is probably below cost. I would be worried about it being counterfeit from a third party seller.

I agree, I don't mind paying a couple bucks more from Amazon directly, in for 3, my car is due for a flush and fill.

I've had dealers recommend me not to do flush & fill of auto transmission fluid for cars 100K+ because it eventually does more damage than good for the transmission

Good deal if your car specifies Dexron VI

If you are like me and your vehicle is so old that it specifies Dexron II or III, can go even less for Valvoline (also very good) for less than $14

There really isnt much truth to that unless youve NEVER done a transmission fluid change on the vehicle. Otherwise you should be doing regular drain and fills as per the manual.

The reasoning behind them saying that is that the old fluid contains the old bits of the worn down tranmission to help get it into gear. Not sure there's any actual proof for this though. It is usually a much better idea to get it changed.

Why?
That doesn't make any sense.

drain and refill is safer.

BTW isn't Valvoline MaxLife full synthetic from Wal-Mart ($17.95) better deal and quality?

The theory is that whatever crud is holding together the internal transmission seals will be loosened by the new fluid and you will begin having problems.
With that being said, it isn't always the case. I've seen a slipping toyota transmission come back to life after 2 or 3 drain and fills

There is that. But also there is no legal definition of Synthetic in the US. At least for oils and such. Mobil sued Castrol over that and go no where. So GrpIV used to be considered Synthetic but now Grp3 oils are called Synthetic also.

Maxlife is most likely mostly Grp3, but thats not a bad thing. It holds up better than the OE Toyota fluid for example. Big maxlife fan myself and used in many customers cars.
