But this thread has gone so far to hell in the last few pages that it's a candidate for off-topic at this point.
Actually, I am glad to see someone with first-hand experience dealing with this in a professional way the way Dylan has. This whole idea of a "cocktail" is fundamentally flawed, starting with the statement, "Don't mix fluids from different manufacturers in your transmission!"

Add to that the use of fluids that don't protect your gears properly, others that have the viscosity of honey when cold and apparently seperate from the rest of the mix, and you end up with effectively 50% fluid that's supposed to be there and 50% fluid that ain't.

The guy with the 06 2.5i needs to leave well enough alone. "Chatter" is a description of clutch operation, not tranny operation last time I heard it used.
