I switched from [...] super tech Dex III to Valvoline MaxLife Dex/Merc in all 3 of my GM vehicles (4t40e, 4t45e, 4L60e transmissions, respectively). The shifts are quicker, arent as 'soft' anymore (mostly thanks to GM's torque management), and Ive found the fluid to stay in great condition even after 50,000 miles. The trans in my Envoy runs 15f degrees cooler with the Valvoline Maxlife Dex/Merc in it. I bought the fluid on the website here and used a coupon code, then picked it up at the store - turned out to be cheaper than anywhere else around.

                          Good question Jake! Normally, a synthetic transmission oil can be mixed with a non synthetic transmission oil. However, when it comes to repairs and maintenance it is always recommended to refer the vehicle owner's manual for the specifications to get a better and safer ride.

                          Yes NRAMember, this is a synthetic fluid. It's formulated with synthetic base stocks, unique seal conditioners, long-life friction modifiers, special anti-wear additives, and shear stable viscosity modifiers, among other components--to fight the four major causes of transmission breakdown: leaks, slippage, shudder, and gear wear.

                      • Q:

                        Is this product compatible with my 2007 Hyundai Elantra (SP-III)? I have heard conflicting arguments about this; the consensus paranoia on the internet contends that this product will destroy a Hyundai AT, while the bottle indicates it is SP-III Hyundai compatible.
