Year, make, model? 3 speed, 4 speed? Better info would get you a better
answer, but in general, don't use anything but what is recommended. No
additives for Chrysler transmissions ... if you do you risk permanent
damage. Drop the pan and replace the fluid and filter if this has not been
done in 30K or more miles.
I would guess that this info applies to engines too. I was in my local
NAPA store where they have a demonstration fixture for this additive.
On the one with the additive, the oil adheres to the gears much better
than the one that does not have it. In most cases, additives are not
recommended by Chrysler or other manufacturers.
The demonstration is pretty convincing just the same.
I've used the oil and trans. additives for about 5 years now with no
My car has almost 200K miles on it 3.3L V6 and the oil additive actually
stopped oil consumption to where I didn't have to add any during oil change
intervals and the tranny additive reduced a pump seal leak in my A604
I worked in a Major Auto parts store chain and many people bought Lucas and
Many people swore by it.....My personal experience with it.....first
additive I thought really did what it said it would do...
The trans additive is just as thick as the oil additive so i'm sure that
helped out on the leak...never noticed any real shift improvements to speak
One of the guys came in for the trans treatment one time to try in an old
chevy truck that was sitting in a field for years...said it would start up
but the trans wouldn't engage, even with fluids topped off...customer added
the lucas and it did the trick...customer was still driving that old truck
around when I left the store.
Do some more research on Lucas if you're that concerned but I don't really
recall anything negative that I've seen about it.
Just as long as they are not related to the "Lucas" electrical
supplier from the UK! You know, the idiots who brought us "Positive
Old Lucas jokes...
"Lucas... prince of darkness!"
"Lucas... inventor of the intermittent wiper!"
"Lucas has invented a new vacuum cleaner. It is the only product they
make which doesn't suck!"

Lucas Steering Fluid Addidive works very well > I had leaky seals n my 90
Laser about 4 years ago. The steering is working fine and I only used one
bottle, it does make the steering, initially, a bit stiff in winter but
beats the hell out of buying a new rack or messing around with the seals.
