Lubeguard Platinum???

I own a 99 Taurus that has the AXODE transmission. No, I am not happy with this transmission but that is for another discussion. My general question.......... is anyone using/adding Lubeguard Platinum to their transmissions or any additives for that matter? I read in a few places that adding the Platinum helps to extend transmission life whatever that means. I lost two torque converter solenoids and wonder if any kind of additive would have prevented their failures. Yes, I do understand that Lubeguard can be mixed with Dextron III resulting in a concoction that resembles Mercon V.

Re: Lubeguard Platinum???

lubeguard is the only tranny additive i've ever used, supposedly it is made by an ex mobil 1 engineer/scientist/whatever. never had a problem with it and i know their product that stops torque converter shudder and their posi traction additive work very well.

Re: Lubeguard Platinum???

Wagon--- did you use the Platinum or were you modifying Dextron to Mercon V's properties?

Re: Lubeguard Platinum???

the shop i used to work at we used the 3 different kinds to modify dex 3 or improve it. red box was for gm's/older fords/whatever specified dex or mercon, green box was for newer chryslers, black box for mercon V(i might have black and green mixed up) i have not used or even seen platinum.

Re: Lubeguard Platinum???

I found the Platinum using Google while in search of LubeGuard. But getting back to "what to use", my Taurus transmission is filled with Mercon V so there is no need to try modifying a Dextron. Maybe the black box stuff you mentioned is the Platinum.

I guess I am just going to leave the transmission alone with the Mercon V recommended by Ford.
