      Comments about Sea Foam Trans Tune Transmission Treatment (16 oz.):

      I put this in my 06 Impala with 210,000 miles. We've had trouble on and off with this tranmission for 100,000 miles. However, it started doing something new: it was sticking when sifting and shifting hard in the higher gears. I was sceptical that this would do much, but I had nothing to loose. I dumped in the trans tune and drove it about 60 miles with part of that on the highway. When I got home, I pulled the dipstick and saw that the fluid was darker. I switched out the fluid with Valvoline maxlife (which is what I have been using and it works pretty good), put on a new filter, and added one bottle of Lucas trans fix (which I have used before and it certianly helped). Once done, I drove down the road making sure to let it all circulate and go through all the gears. I noticed that it was shifting smoother and cleaner than it had in my memory and the only thing I did differently this time was use the transtune. So good that I'm sold on it and going to try thier other products.

        Comments about Sea Foam Trans Tune Transmission Treatment (16 oz.):

        My 98 Nissan Altima was shifting slow 1-2 when cold and harsh 2-1 at stops. Also, delayed and harsh 3-2 and slow into R. Half a bottle of TransTune and the shifting was twice as crisp within a few miles. A week later, I poured in the rest and shifting got better again. Now my 1-2 shifts are twice as fast at lower rpms, and my 2-1 hard shifts at stops is 75% gone. Shift into R is fast. 3-2 is quick and painless. Before the TransTune, I was about to give up, too, because I'd already tried drain and fill with MaxLife ATF a few months earlier, but that didn't improve things much. Now I look for excuses to drive my "new" car.

          Comments about Sea Foam Trans Tune Transmission Treatment (16 oz.):

          I've used this product in my 04 ford Taurus with 4f50n transmission. Was having problems with slow and sometimes erratic shifts. added half a bottle to transmission before fluid and filter change. I ran my car for about 30 minutes making sure it shifted into every gear. At first started noticing even more erratic shifting problems. so dropped the pan and drained all 14.5 quarts out the transmission. after refilling with Castrol mercron v transmission topping it off added the other half of seafoam to the transmission. Noticed overtime the transmission started shifting better with no hesitation into gears. 20k miles later did another flush, filter change, and filled with just Castrol mercron v. No longer do I have any transmission problems. Thank you seafoam trans tune.

                My 2003 Safari van has 125,000 miles on it. It began shifting VERY HARD from first to second. I added the trans treatment. Drove 8 miles to the mechanic who changed out the trans fluid. I couldn't believe it. IT WORKED. Shifts just like new again. This Sea Foam product worked so good I am going to try the gas treatment product next. I only tried it because of all the positive reviews even though the mechanic said that the only hope was to replace the valve body (?) etc. and leave him with several hundred bucks. This stuff works!!!

                  I bought it for preventive maintnence and it worked excellent at cleaning BUT BEWARE YOUR ATF WILL BECOME FILTHY FROM GUNK THAT WAS REMOVED.Expect to change fluid AND FILTER within 1000 miles. Add 1oz. per quart of ATF in the system.

                      Recently purchased a 1992 Nissan trade-in. The transmission had new fluid in it but the shifting was not as smooth as I thought it should be. There were definite jerks when the tranny would shift. Now this is only the second Seafoam product I have ever bought, but this stuff just plain works. I added half a pint, per instructions, to a warm transmission. Drove another 6 or 7 miles shifting into all the gears and stepping on the accelerator to get into overdrive. Before I got back home the car was shifting into gears as well as my 2007 Chevrolet, no jerks, no hesitation. I'm very pleased with the results.

                        Comments about Sea Foam Trans Tune Transmission Treatment (16 oz.):

                        After trying numerous transmission cleaners over the years this one has emerged the clear winner for those of us who are owner/mechanics (or working with a patient trusting $ concious customer) with a varnished transmission. It will free a sticking valve spool. I have noticed that some severe cases required additional treatments. But that sure beats the alternative. I have noticed the most dramatic turn arounds in Mercedes 240/300 diesel models as they go from rough and late to pillow smooth and on time. Of course it goes without saying that external shift controls will need to be functing properly. Anyway this stuff not only cleans the valve body but the balance of the interior so you avoid the migration issue that often follows if only the valve body is bench cleaned. Enjoy!

                          I first tried this in 2007 Nissan Sentra as it felt like it was dragging down the road. I added it as the directions stated and with in 50 miles it seemed like I had a new transmission. Using it is a CVT as flush worked extremely well since there is no filter to clog. Recently I picked up an 2002 Bravada (really cheap) anyway it had this high pitched whine and slippage as the previous owner was not very diligent about car maintenance. At first I thought it was the front differential as these cars are prone to transfer case problems. With nothing to lose I decided to to try and add it to the transmission just in case I was wrong. Bingo with in 10 miles the problems ceased. If you research online many are against Seafoam calling it "Snake Oil" and then praising Lucas trans slip. Here is the difference. Seafoam will clean your transmission but if you have leaks they will be revealed. Lucas is thicker and will plug leaks, as far as what it does for the transmission itself well that I remains to be seen.

                            My '06 Honda Accord was shifting erratically so I added a can of Seafaom. I almost instantly noticed it changing a little more smoothly. It has only been 3 days with light driving & I can tell that it is improving. I plan to change the filter & fluid soon in hopes that it will solve the issue, but I may have waited too long before adding this great additive.

                                Hi Curious, great question! When performing a transmission flush, add ½ can Trans Tune to the automatic transmission fluid before servicing. Drive for at least 30 minutes and run the engine through all gears. Trans Tune will slowly re-liquefy old ATF fluid residue deposits that can prevent valve bodies, governors, bands, pumps and solenoids from functioning normally. Perform the transmission flush and add 1/2 can Trans Tune to the fresh fluid to prevent future residue and moisture build up. Trans Tune can also be used with a transmission flush machine.

                              I have an 03 Honda Element with 125,000 miles. Every once and awhile there is a slight "shutter" in the car during light acceleration around 40 mph. It last about 5-10 seconds then smoothes out. I'm feeling the shuttering down by my feet/pedal. It's starting to happen more and more. Would this product be helpful with transmission shutter? I'm hoping to avoid replace the TC, which is ungodly expensive.

                            • Q:

                              Can this product be used as a treatment to existing transmission fluid? Or, do you need to add it, drive a while, and then drain the transmission fluid, refill, etc.

                              I'd like to use as a preventitive measure on my 2005 Ford 500 and 2003 CRV. Thank you in advance for a detailed response on how to best use the product.

                                With reference to your inquiry on the Sea Foam Trans Tune Transmission Treatment (16 oz.) - part# TT16, when performing a transmission flush, add ½ can Trans Tune to the automatic transmission fluid before servicing. Drive for at least 30 minutes and run the engine through all gears. Trans Tune will slowly re-liquefy old ATF fluid residue deposits that can prevent valve bodies, governors, bands, pumps and solenoids from functioning normally. Perform the transmission flush and add 1/2 can Trans Tune to the fresh fluid to prevent future residue and moisture build up. Trans Tune can also be used with a transmission flush machine.

                                The Sea Foam Trans Tune Transmission Treatment (16 oz.) (Part No. TT16) is a petroleum based product comprised of three specific oils, blended in just the right proportions to safely clean varnish deposits in transmission, power steering and hydraulic pump components. Trans Tune is compatible with all commonly used petroleum and synthetic based hydraulic fluids used in automatic transmissions, power steering systems, marine transmissions, agricultural equipment and industrial hydraulic lifts. Trans Tune reduces rough or erratic shifting by dissolving varnish that contaminates transmission valve bodies, bands, governors, pumps and passages. Trans Tune makes the perfect system flush for transmissions, power steering and hydraulic pumps, removing damaging moisture and deposits that impair system performance.
