I have heard that somebody on here has used TrannsX and had great luck with it. I was just wondering if anybody else has had good luck with it. I am putting it in my 96 chrysler car, It has stumble when its cold, slips on takeoffs.

If it is recommended, how do you use it, follow the directions, or any other good tricks.

Chryslers are the car's I've had to use it in the most..... Them and a few Escort automatics....
Directions:
Buy 2 can's of Trans X, the Pint NOT the Quart...
Remove a pint of tranny fluid.
Add ONE pint of Trans X and start the car and let it idle or drive it for a FULL day. (that's 3 hours or so in people talk)
Get that tranny on the highway and on the back roads and in the city and work it. NOT hard, just drive it up hills and down and stop sign to stop sign, regularly like daily driving...
Change your fluid and filter at that point. A fluid flush would be 100% better option but they cost about $80 bucks in this neck of the woods... I recommend it because it removes ALL the old fluid, not just what's in the pan.
Add 1/2 pint of the Trans X to the fresh fluid and the car should be driving fine after that. But ONLY if the tranny issue is because of not changing the fluid ever and having a bad varnish build up, which is generally the case in many cincumstances.

FE
P.S. It will NOT fix a broken tranny, and it will NOT break a good Tranny.

Last year i had "used" one put in, because something came apart in mine, the clutches ect were fine, but to replace whatever went wrong would have been more. This one slips sometimes and the shifts arent as smooth. I changed the fluid and filter and took the filter to the shop that put the "new" one in because we had a year warentee on it. In my case it probably woldnt be worth my trouble.
