~~ Also, if your car is somewhat new with low mileage, stick with using just the tranny fluid. BUT, if your car is kinda old-ish with high mileage, go ahead and add the Lucas Transmission Fix Stop Slip.

If your fluid is NOT PINK and smells bad, it's possible all you need is to change the fluid. Changing the fluid is what you do BEFORE deciding to take it to a transmission repair shop. Also because tranny fluid is cheap when compared to rebuilding the beast.

Transmission fluid is more than just a fancy lubricant. It's also an hydraulic fluid, used for extreme pressures in pushing & pulling internal mechanical movements.

First check the trans fluid level. Is there enough in the tranny? With automatic trannys, you check the level on the dipstick WHILE the engine is at idle. If it's low, add what the dipstick tells you. NEXT: check for the color and smell of the fluid. Automatic Transmission fluid should be PINK. Also, it's smell should be quite strong. If it smells burned, and the fluid isn't PINK, then your tranny needs repair. Always rely upon the regular tranny fluid BEFORE looking for additives.
