The 32oz bottle is perfect for either topping off or changing the reservoir fluid; a flush might take two bottles. Anyway, the side bottle viewer lets you see how much fluid you have remaining... that's a bonus. Easy to pour and has a great price, I recommend it.

I bought this to flush and fill my power steering system when I replaced the pump in November. I noticed that it was much thicker than the OEM recommended fluid, but it was too late to turn back. Come Jan, had two months at arctic temps. At 10 deg. F or less, the pump and belt screamed unit it warmed up. I hope there's no perm. damage.
I will flush and replace with OEM in the Spring.

          This stuff used to be so much cheaper but then like anything else, prices have gone up. Just needed some to have on hand for when the stuff leaks out in the tractor. Same price as [...] though so I'd rather give my business to Advance!

                  It should work only if it's  a manual transmission.  Verify the trans make and model.  Yes if it is an NV1500.
