Fairy nuff! Thanks!
Any approved (on the list) ATF+4 is essentially the same stuff. Buy according to price.
Thanks, I did find The Mobil Super ATF+4 at Can Tire which also was available for $8 per Litre, and will use this for the front transfer case.
Front transfer case? You got two? Kept a franco from putting ATF in the diffs on his truck the other day. In french anything with gears in it qualifies as a transfer case. Poor dude, would've hated to see how long his diffs would last with ATF in them!
Wow good catch on that fatal mistake!!!!!
Same here.. Cant find the stuff anywhere anymore. Not sure what happened to it.
Glad I found this thread. I'm more of a LOST member but I'm going to start using this site more. In a few weeks I'm going to have the Jeep dealership service my T-case and tranny. I'll just let them use the fluids they use. :shrug:
A Jeep dealership will automatically use the correct fluid,besides the 247/249 t-case they will only put ATF+4 in a t-case.
I was reading my Jeep Owners Manual. And seeing what it said specifics in regards to ATF+4 stuff
Page 338 of manual says Using transmission fluid other than the manufacturer’s recommended fluid may cause deterioration in transmission shift quality and/or torque converter shudder. Using a transmission fluid other than the manufacturer’s recommended fluid will result in a more frequent fluid and filter changes.. Refer to Fluids, Lubricants, and Genuine Parts for correct fluid type.
On page 362-363 it states for Engine Oil to use API Certified SAE 5W30… but for Auto Trans fluid it states Mopar ATF+4 Automatic Trans Fluid. (no substitute, by name specific).. But upon calling Jeep's 1800 helpline, and speaking to local Jeep Service Dept any ATF that meets or exceeds ATF+4 is authorized. (to include Royal Purple MaxATF)
Sp the royal purple MaxATF is good to run, because i cant find any other ATF over here. Atleast not on 2 bases... But i can find the purple.
I bought some Castrol ATF+4 last year at either Walmart or Canadian Tire... pretty sure it was CTC though cause I normally stay away from Wally World.
Royal Purple Max atf? Can it be used? I know that its not on the list, but thats what the mechanic here in Germany recommended because ATF+4 can't be found in Germany...
No it will not work.Any Chrysler dealership will have the correct ATF+4 and I now they are over there.
I don't want to sound like im beating a dead horse but the RP website says that it covers ATF+4. All I hear is great things about it. I just don't understand.
They also say it covers DEXIII which in GM trans does not like friction modifiers that is needed for ATF+4.Plus they state do not use in place of Ford's type F ATF which has a heavy does of friction modifiers like ATF+4.
They are selling a product,do you think a certain toothpaste will get you laid?? P.T.Barnum said there was a sucker born every minute,he sold stuff too.
