ATF-3 works really good year 'round and especially in the cold. I've been rolling with it since '91 from New Hampshire winters to Florida summers. :thumbsup:Originally posted by KandyKamaro@Nov 21 2003, 07:01 PM
I have a feeling it might be what VegasHopper is talking about...i use 40 weight ND oil....and the weather has gotten alot colder now.....whats the best oil to use in cold weather?? Can I go with the thinnest weight of oil?? Ima take the dumps apart n clean em with an air hose and check all the seals too...just in case...oh BTW they are steel square dumps. Thanks for the help everyone!
ATF-3 is different from regular transmission fluids because it doesn't contain the detergents that CAN actually be a problem for pump gears.Originally posted by KandyKamaro@Nov 23 2003, 05:56 PM
Thanks for the help....i guess ill change to the thinnest oil I can find for the winter...Im not an expert but I think ill pass on the ATF3.....from what Ive read on here using tranny fluid is bad que no? Youve never had problems with it Bouncin89merc2low97lhs??? woah that was long...lol..
I usually pick up Havoline but it doesn't matter, as long as it's ATF-3. Big-name or no-name, it's pretty much the same, especially since we're not putting any real "wear" on the fluid and only using it in a pressure application.Originally posted by KandyKamaro@Nov 24 2003, 09:32 PM
