transmission additive

i havw 165k on my transmission
i have it flushed ever 30k...never had filter changed
the tranny works fine..

There are no miracle additives that fix broken parts. I suggest fixing it properly.

yea...didnt think so....but hate to spend a ton of money on a small leak....

is it worth it to remove the tranny and change the seal on a 165 mile xmission?

any advice?...

is it hard to do?....i would say im a experienced mechanic...but very inexperienced when dealing with transmissions...

165k I'd say it's time for a transmission. The leak is probably a sign of a worn bushing or something like that.

Cool

My T'bird has about 200,000 miles on her now. It had 149,000m when I bought it. The front seal started to leak (or was leaking) not long after I got her. Additives will not stop the leak, or slow it for that matter. I've tried a few. I just keep an eye on it and add fluid as needed. I can't afford the labor to replace a $15.00 seal. I'm waiting till I have to replace or repair it. I just had her serviced and flushed, and a cooler installed. I was told it shifts fine and all looked well (for 200,000 miles).

additives don't stop leaks, however some additives work quite well at prolonging the ATF and performance of the ATF....lubguard.
