trans fluid question

Will putting a little extra fluid in the transmission of a GT do anything bad ? I have Lucas oil ATF conditioning fluid and id like to use it but i don't feel like draining my transmission just to put it in..

Honestly, I wouldn't put any additives in the trans. Most of those things are gimmicks. Or they actually hurt the trans. Best thing you can have is new clean fluid and filter, and the new Dexron 6 fluid would be a step up from our factory Dexron 3.

Lucas is not needed for a good transmission. If the trans is tired, then changed the fuild and add a qt or more. I used it in my wagon, it did not changed the way it shifted but stopped a small leak.

Also that's some very thick stuff

the idea of putting a coagulate into the trans does not sound like good idea to me.
