I wonder why Lubegard RED isn't compatible with Type F? They do state that on the bottle.

I'm no chemist, but I guess it may make the fluid TOO slippery. (?) Clutches may suffer?

Hmmm.

LubeGard

Type F is very old transmission fluid, I hope that you not using that in a newer vehicle. Type F has a very high content of Fiction Modifiers, and differnt fluid viscosity as per Saybolt testing specifications. If you put type F in a transmission that requies Mercon Dextron 3 4 or 5 that the transmission will have very harsh shifting concerns and accelerated clutch fibers and steels wear, as a result this will cause other internal transmision parts to fail faster. The LubeGard is fine and dandy for older transmissions its like and EOS or Slick 50 for transmissions.

Hey thanks for the reply,

I over analyze the details sometimes, way too much. Talking strictly from a hobbyist point of view. I build all my own transmissions for no other reasons than, I can. I like to see them tip top. Nowadays it's like alphabet soup with all the trans fluids out there. Personally I've always used type F for all the GM slush boxes I run- excluding the 4L60-E in my Camaro, but the old ones in the fleet get F. I'm considering trying something different with the latest 700R4 I built.

I may even make my own fluid! HA!
