It all depends on the condition and mileage on the trans...If it's working good, [no engagement issues,slipping,etc.],then the kit will help.However it won't put clutch material back on wearing/worn clutches,or re-vitalize the old clutch apply lip seals in the clutch drums.If the trans goes out,it won't be because of the kit.It was allready on it's way.When you pull the pan,and it doesn't look real fresh in there,if you know what I mean,I would consider a rebuild in addition to the kit.If it's clean,I'd put it in.....With the pan off,don't be concerned about a little metal dust in the bottom,but very dark/burnt fluid OR clutch material sitting in there should throw up a red flag.I've pulled some customers pans,and couldn't believe that the trans was still working.Thats what you don't want to see.
