Here is where we need to be honest, yes, transmission additives will help with a slipping transmission, the problem with that is the additives usually have an ingredient in them that swells the clutch and band material to eliminate the slipping and then you think this is great, till one day you put the car in gear and there is no response from the transmission, the trans has left the building, if the transmission is slipping and you are going to keep the car, take the plunge and have it fixed properly, the additives are just a mask, if your going to get rid of the car and can sleep at night then Trans-Medic is about the best on the market.Sorry for being so honest about this.
