View Full Version : Tranny, Fluid, and Slick50
06-21-2007, 02:35 AM
i have the 99 GAGT with the 4t45e and when i went to take off quickly (has never done this before) it felt the the torque converter was slipping until i let off a little. my question is: It there an easy way of checking the fluid?
is there a higher grade fluid i can put in?
would a filter + flush and fill help at all?
And lastly, what about the Slick50 for auto trannies.

Say, NO! to Slick 50 in your ATF or motor oil.
IMO, would NOT recommend a ATF flush.
Just change the fluid in the pan & change the filter; if you want to change some of the ATF.
No easy way to check the ATF; we have a "sealed" system.
But see: How To: Check automatic transmission fluid (http://www.grandamgt.com/forum/showthread.php?t=40973)

So what are some fluid recommendations?
Any answer to that?
Because I'm looking at doing a small tune up on my car at 100k [about 1k miles from now]
Included in the list was the Slick50 Tranny treatment...
But now that I see this, I reconsider?
What about the Slick50 Engine treatment?
and the Slick50 Fuel additive to clean the system?
Anyone have any suggestions?
I feel it's pointless to make a new thread on it...
when some of it is already discussed here ;)
After reading up on.
I seem to rethink things.
After digging around more I don't know.
Transmission additives = bad?
Engine additives = ?
Fuel additives = ?
