Post AOD trans fluid

Windsor-Fox Recommends Mercon fluid for AODs. Art Carr Performance Transmissions recomnends Type-F for AODs because of its superior lubrication. I have art carrs products in my tranny. Which one should I use?

Also, anybody used B&Ms trick shift additive?

the trans will shift quicker with the f fluid than the dexron-mercon types, different friction values.

Safe bet would be to use the fluid recommended by the trans remanufacturer. They may use different clutch and/or band material. Protect your warranty and then experiment.

More positive shifts. Type F is compatible in all automatics (Dexron is not). B&M Trick Shift has the same shifting characteristics as Type F, thus can be used in any trans but it costs $$$$ more than the Type F. Go with Type F. 4-jaw will contend that all you need is mineral oil with a touch of red dye #4 and you have duplicated all the tranny fluids!
