Heat and Contaminants: A Transmission’s Greatest Enemies

It is scientifically proven that every problem that occurs in a transmission (other than manufacturing defects) is caused by contamination- the same as in an engine. Contamination is the number one cause of transmission trouble! Why? Because it creates uneven hotspots. And the contamination process has already begun within the first 10,000 miles. Some symptoms of transmission failure include slippage and difficulty or inability to shift. That’s why it’s recommended that you clean your transmission at least every two years or after 25,000 miles.

Removing this contamination is critical to the life of your transmission. First, this contamination interferes with the operation of your transmission’s valve body (which regulates shifting). Second, the internal seals dry out and become compressed. This compression creates pockets where the seals do not make contact, and it results in a loss of internal pressure.

Auto-Rx® Plus is your solution. Auto-Rx® Plus works as you drive. Contamination residue and build-up are liquefied and gradually removed by the transmission filter, cleaning the internal mechanism of your transmission.

What to Do with the Leftover Product?

After using the required dosing for your transmission, some Auto-Rx® Plus product remains in the bottle. Suggestions for using this remainder include cleaning the power steering (2 ounces) or installing an Auto-Rx® Maintenance Plan dose (4 ounces) in your engine crankcase to get some measure of engine cleaning.  NOTE: This is not for engines with sludge.

Transmission Repairs

Replacement of the torque convertor is something Auto-Rx® Plus can prevent. In most cases, folks use Auto-Rx® Plus after the fact to correct a sick transmission. Very few folks actually service their transmissions at the appropriate time based on the fluid life. Many transmissions could be saved with Auto-Rx® Plus. The biggest problem is that the manufacturers suggest a transmission fluid exchange from 60-80,000 miles. That is far too long under normal driving conditions.

It is very simple to invest in a bottle of Auto-Rx® Plus and add half the bottle to the existing fluid at about the 30-40,000 mile mark, drive for 1,000 miles and change the fluid, then use the remaining half of the bottle at the 70-80,000 mile mark for a second change of fluid. In all likelihood, the transmission would never have a problem.

Manual Transmissions

To get the most out of Auto-Rx® Plus, we recommend the following method of use. The application will last for the life of your manual transmission:

STEP 1 Add 1 ounce of Auto-Rx® Plus per quart of oil.
STEP 2 Drive 1,000 miles for vehicles driven routinely in high mileage situations, or 3,000 miles for vehicles in harsh conditions, such as dry and dusty with extreme heat.
STEP 3 Drain the Auto-Rx® Plus and oil. Refill according to vehicle manufacturer’s recommendation.


Automatic Transmissions

Automatic transmissions are generally not properly serviced over a vehicle’s intended life. For this reason, transmissions get a bad rap as being the weak link in the drive train. Repairs are generally very costly, usually starting at over $2,000. Owner manuals put fluid exchange intervals as high as 80,000 miles, but a transmission repair shop will seldom recommend running the fluid for more than 30,000 miles. So who would you believe? If you have more than 30,000 miles on your vehicle, we highly recommend adding the prescribed dose of Auto-Rx® Plus and driving 1,000 miles for ordinary driving conditions or 3,000 miles for harsh conditions (see Step 5 below) before a fluid change. This will ensure that deposits, gums, and varnishes come out with draining. Don’t put fresh fluid into a gummed-up system. A single treatment is all that is needed.

Harsh Conditions:

On automatic transmissions that have been poorly maintained and have had severe duty (such as towing or carrying large payloads), gummed up deposits will be heavier than the normal passenger car under light duty. Therefore, it will take longer to clean up these deposits in the torque convertor and shifting module valves. However, in 99% of applications, adding 6 fluid ounces of Auto-Rx® Plus and running 3,000 miles are all that is required to clean up an automatic transmission. Most shifting issues and overdrive chatter are resolved in 3,000 miles. After completing the runtime, you merely need to service the filter screen and/or magnet before purging out the old fluid with new. There is very little filtration on most transmissions, so there is no reason to run the dirty fluid any longer than necessary.

Instructions for Automatic Transmissions

To get the most out of Auto-Rx® Plus, we recommend the following easy, step-by-step method of use for your automatic transmission:

STEP 1 Check the transmission fluid level. If it is at or below the full mark, there is space available to add Auto-Rx® Plus. If the level is overfilled, it should be returned to the proper level before continuing.
STEP 2 Add approximately 6 ounces of Auto-Rx® Plus regardless of the fluid capacity. (For metric measurements, use 138 mL.) Each bottle of Auto-Rx® Plus contains 12 fluid ounces.
STEP 3 Drive approximately 5 miles to circulate and evenly disperse the Auto-Rx® Plus in the transmission fluid.
STEP 4 Check the fluid level again. Add transmission fluid if the level is below the full mark.
STEP 5 For vehicles operating under normal driving conditions, drive the vehicle normally for 1,000 miles (or 3,000 miles if under harsh conditions explained here).
STEP 6 Empty the transmission fluid and replace with fresh fluid approved for your transmission.
STEP 7 Change the filter at this time if your transmission is so equipped. This removes the liquefied contaminants off the valve bodies and the torque convertor.SPECIAL NOTE: In most cars, the transmission filter resembles a bug screen designed to stop large particles of contaminants. In fact, many imports do not have transmission filters at all. Too often, the transmission filter is confused in its performance with that of an oil filter. In most cases it is not necessary to change the transmission screen when performing a T-Tech service. The real value of T-Tech is that your transmission now has 100% brand new fluid with high levels of viscosity to help your vehicle shift and run smoother. However, if you want to change the transmission filter when performing a T-Tech service, it’s no problem. We suggest what is best for your car. You make the call!
STEP 8 Congratulations! Your cleaning application is done.
