Update on trans flaring...could it be the Lubegard?
More than 3 months ago, on the suggestion of Steve Brotherton, I tried a bottle of Lubegard to deal with a flaring problem in my auto trans between the 2 forward gears. Miraculously the flaring problem is now gone and the trans now shifts with decisive but not neck-snapping shifts. I used to only apply half throttle to avoid the flaring in the lower gears, but now I can sock the whole 77 hp to the trans with no flaring.
I can't be abolutely certain that the Lubegard solely corrected the flaring problem, but over the 3 month trial period, I haven't touched a thing on the trans area.
