Lucus Tranny conditioner ??

Has anyone used this stuff ? My 94 Thunderbird tranny was acting like it was jumping into nuetral at speeds of 45 to 55.I put Lucus tran.con.in it and it still did act that way for a few more days.then after the 3erd day my trannny started working like new. I hope and prey that it will still run like it dose now for a lone time. Has anyone else had this happen to them.

While i cant comment on those specific conditions, I got a real deal on a 93
tbird with 'slippage in hot weather', over Ebay.

The car was in Atlanta, i'm in Columbus...I flew down with an aftermarket
tranny cooler, bought some Lucas AT fix, installed both and drove it home.

Put 50,000 on it since with no problems so far.

Your results may vary and there are other possible causes for those symptoms.

If they only ocurred 'hot', I suggest the tranny cooler as well. Make sure
to install it on the return line FROM radiator

I'd always installed them Prior to the Radiator to allow the warming
engine to warm the transmission. But then again I was in a colder
climate than Atlanta.

They are most efficient after the radiator. I never heard
anyone declare the trans failed from over cooling. If cool
operation adversly effects operation, there are temp control
valves available to divert the fluid around the cooler(s).
Keep in mind that the radiator has no significant coolant
flow to "warm" the trans until the engines thermostat opens
which is usually well after the torque converter will have
warmed the fluid. Modern electronic transmissions also have
temp sensors and other ways to prevent converter lockup when
cold allow the fluid to be warmed sufficiently.
