Transmissions Read Post From MMO User-Lube Guard Auto-Rx

My fiance has a 1991 Honda Civic DX. It has been very well maintained for the 3 1/2 years we have been together. I come from a good mechanical background and have always done the work myself. Around 102K, the tranny (automatic) began acting up. I checked the fluid level and it was full and not dirty. When coming to a stop, the tranny would not shift back down into 1st gear until the car was driven about 15-20 mins and got good and hot. I tried using Marvel Mystery Oil in the tranny to fix the problem but it did not work. 

 

I also tried the Lube Guard transmission flush additive in the white bottle.  After nothing seemed to work, I spoke with many transmission rebuild shops and all of them said my tranny was "telling me it is about to go out." It would have cost me $1,300-$1,600, based on the estimates given to me, to get a new/rebuilt tranny for the car. I heard so much about Auto-Rx (ARX) on Bob is the Oil Guy and decided to give it a try.

I told one of the tranny shops I called that I had a product I wanted to try in the tranny before I ordered a new one. The guy snickered at me and said, "It's not gonna work." I changed the ATF that was currently in the tranny and added 6oz of ARX with fresh ATF. I followed the instructions on the website to the letter. I also put 1 bottle of ARX in the engine. Within approximately 500 miles, probably closer to 300 miles (I know it was quick), the tranny began shifting normal again.

At the end of the recommended mileage, I drained the ATF/ARX out and refilled it with the proper ATF. After my successful ARX application, I called the guy back and told him I no longer needed a tranny because a product called Auto-Rx cured the problem. He didn't believe me so I told him to go to the ARX website and see how the product works for himself. The car now has 108,200 on it and running better than ever.

Thanks for making such a great product, Frank. It saved me over $1,000 and a lot of work.

TRANSMISSION SLIPPING?
Permalink  
 


 I bought a new test car (2000 Honda Accord with large 4 cylinder engine 156,000 miles) The transmissions in these cars can not be flushed
unless your willing to drop the transmission ( I am not) the fluid was brand new Honda Certified Transmission Fluid. Added 6 ounces of Auto-Rx to the new fluid. At 1000 miles removed the magnetic transmission fill plug it had black sludge and metal particulates stuck to it
never saw anything like the transmission plug (black sludge type contaminants on magnetic plug) fluid as black as tar.

The Transmission Tech who was involved at the start of pouring the initial 6 ounces in this transmission told me nothing would clean the unit but a $1500.00 take down. At drain and fill time he was amazed. No he does not want to see Auto-Rx around as he said it could seriously damage his kids college fund.

Transmission Repairs. Replacement of the torque convertor can be something that we could prevent. As we know folks use auto-rx after the fact in most cases. That is to correct an ill transmission. Very few folks service their transmissions at the appropriate time based on the fluid life.

Many can be saved with Auto-Rx. Somehow we have never been able to get the consumer to use Auto-Rx regularly to prevent the big ticket repairs. I think the biggest problem is that the manufacturers suggest a transmission fluid exchange at 60K all the way up to 80,000 miles. In my estimation that is way too long under normal driving conditions. How simple it would be to invest $27.00 into a bottle of Auto-Rx. Then simply add it to the existing fluid at about the 30K to 40K mark, drive for 1000 miles and have the fluid changed out. Then use the second half of the bottle at the 70K to 80,000 mile mark for a second change out of fluid. In all likelihood the customer would never encounter a transmission problem.
