I use it in my Xterra and it's absolutely the best gear oil I've ever used, but I don't know if I would spend that much again. The starter of the thread was pulling the pan on the old american stuff. When it's warm out or when the tranny is fully warmed up , I can shift as fast as I like but in the cold, I have to pay attention and use some effort when going from 1st to 2nd. I won't argue the waste or not if the vehicle has lots of miles with no maintenance. Otherwise it also indicates no needed maintainence. That will keep the fluid plenty fresh from then on.
I tried very hard to get this stuff last year. Maybe others would have more luck. I hope this helped Jan 05, 2011. When you take the car to your mechanic for the transmission filter and oil change, ask, they should check the differential should you have rear-wheel drive. I'm going to run it a week and do it again. Drain and fill is not a waste of time.
Cost comparison should not be made. Even that method does get 100% of the old fluid changed out, but it does a good job of getting most of it. Flushing every 30k miles is too many miles of abuse. My shifting experience has been the opposite. Listen, I'm not telling you not to flush the tranny. The fluid is always refreshened. This just maintenance that should be done.
It's certainly not a waste of money either. Just shy of 5 qts to refill and your on your way. Given all the hassles associated with fixing broken parts on your car or truck, let www. My truck is properly maintained and the tran is not going to fail from any fluid related problem. You will also see the fluid change color.

If you are having trouble shifting when it's cold, be sure to check your clutch fluid. Third you seem quite sure my tranny is going to end up in a heap and yours is not. Slowly is better than all at once in a higher mileage transmission. This will keep the steering system happy. From the used oil analyses I've read of Royal Purple on the Bob is the Oil Guy site, I haven't been terribly impressed with the product.
I get a 75% fluid change assuming you drain half of the fluid per drain at a fraction of the cost of a machine job. Have assistant shut off vehicle at about 10. This way, fresh fluid is pumped through the system. As for us, its part of the service package. First there seems to be a few misconceptions.
Replacing less than half the fluid with synth still leaves a blend of mostly old dino fluid which is little if any better than if you had added dino fluid anyway. Drain and fill is not as stupid as you like to make it sound. The result is a mushy pedal since the wate will compress but the brake fluid won't. Figuring the mix ration of 3:1, that will give me another 2-3 fresh quarts. It would be good to flush thoroughly if you have over 60k and never touched the transmission.
