Default Lubegard ATF Protectant, Great Result!

Many of us don't find subaru auto trans shift too smooth. My 01 Legacy auto trans was actually fine but down shifts kinda hard. I took it for granted that this is the way Subaru's are. Yesterday, however, I "bravely" added a bottle of Ammaco Lubegard transmission protactant in. Boy, the car shifts so much smoother. I highly recommended this product for those who want smooth shifting auto. My car has 120K on it. The transmission is about 40K miles. Now it drive like new. I brought it from Autozone. Advance also carries it. For details visit www.lubegard.com

Next I need to replace the catalytic converter, which I have already purchased for $220 (off-market direct fit). Hope this will resolve the P0420, cc low efficiency code.

Every automatic transmission that we service gets Lubegard... We use the Black Bottle... Napa Part Nunber 765-2603... Lubegard is some amazing stuff... 9 times out of 10, it clears up the transfer clutch binding issue that alot of people have.

Lubegard is red. I notice some black stuff towards the bottom of the bottle. Do you have any idea what it is?

would this stuff be suitable for my girlfriend's POS 1986 Toyota Celica?? Looks to be pretty universal for ATs.

What is the procedure for adding the stuff??

Don't know about Calica. Should work.
Procedure according to them is to add slowly through the ATF dipstick while engine is running (I left it a parking position). Most cars takes one bottle (10oz) of lubegard. If your ATF level was high to begin with, you may want to let out just a bit. That's what I did. Don't want to overfill too much beyond the dipstick mark. After it has been added, drive for a few miles to mix the stuff in. Let me know how it works for you if you do ge head adn use it.

Update:
Two years later with 150K on my legacy, Lubegard still works great/smooth. During which time I drained and refilled ATF once at 140K (Walmart supertech) with some more Lubegard red added.

Would this also be recommended for a 1997 legacy GT Auto? (153,000 miles)

Yes it will. Get the basic version called Lubegard red, cheaper. You will like it. The stuff make the ATF lasts longer too though I never tested that theory.
Highly recommended.
