SON OF A BISCUIT! I DIDN'T LISTEN!!! 2015 Hyundai Genesis Sedan 5.0L V8 RWD 8-speed A/T 50k miles. I want it to last as long as possible with the least amount of problems possible so I went ahead and just recently did a transmission drain, pan drop, and refill. I couldn’t find the Hyundai OEM transmission fluid(SP-IV-RR) for my specific transmission (8 speed automatic developed and manufactured by Hyundai, not ZF) anywhere online and I really didn’t want to pay $30 a quart at the dealership. So I went with a SPECIFIC AMSOIL transmission fluid that specifically lists SP-IV-RR as per the owner's manual. Now under very light acceleration it feels funny like it’s not sure what to do. However, under very heavy acceleration (when I floor it) I can’t tell any difference and it feels just like it did before. It’s only when I barely press the gas pedal it seems to stutter. Not always. But about 50% of the time. I contacted Amsoil and they said some vehicles need to be hooked up to a scanner at a dealership for a relearn which makes no sense to me for a simple drain and fill but what do I know. I’ve included screenshots of my email to them and their response. I would like your input PLEASE. P.S. The owners manual states the transmission fluid is a lifetime fluid with no need to change it. also there are no trouble codes no dash lights or anything of the sort. Is this something that can still be detected by a computer scanner if I were to take it to the dealership? The vehicle is still under factory warranty. Pps: Out of a 10.46 quarts system, I only replaced 3.66 quarts making this even MORE DISTURBING! 🤦🏻‍♂️ https://images.themaven.net/ontheroadwithscotty/car-questions-and-answers/wZaiVdSoaUmuuhRB5at-IA/02a94acc-0e84-4ab6-85bb-16a2ddbe83fd https://images.themaven.net/ontheroadwithscotty/car-questions-and-answers/wZaiVdSoaUmuuhRB5at-IA/3c4aec01-2342-4b7d-9dd3-4d7f434db74c https://images.themaven.net/ontheroadwithscotty/car-questions-and-answers/wZaiVdSoaUmuuhRB5at-IA/c35ec27e-383c-467d-afcf-69e9d0d694aa https://images.themaven.net/ontheroadwithscotty/car-questions-and-answers/wZaiVdSoaUmuuhRB5at-IA/b1658ec0-f770-4081-9ead-2546ac54c797

Yet another among BAZILLIONs of reasons to use OEM authentic genuine parts/fluids. I take sufficient ridicule for my belief in OEM, but I'm LAUGHING all the way to the bank at what I save on BIZARRE problem-repairs resulting from installing non-OEM. Must-read here:

Quoting Scotty fan Philstuf: "I worked at a dealership and 95% (plus) of the driveability issues I ever addressed were from non-OEM parts on tune-ups."Like you, I have to profess, OEM may SEEM a premium, but those engineers MAY ACTUALLY know what they are doing, designing engines, intakes and computer systems. Cost over time is SO much lower. I have YET to go wrong with OEM ignition parts, fuel parts, or hard items (Camshaft, lifters, plugs, clutch cylinders, emissions, etc).Please know, that once I got out of my 'teens, I learned the value of OEM, and why "less expensive" is more often "cheap."Tell it from the mountain, brother!   Confucius say, "Buy cheap, pay twice."
