Hello, can anyone provide advice with adding subaru or other transmission additives. Outback 2002 2.5, 110,000k miles. Nothing wrong with transmission but thinking it may help with shifting and longevity.

Thank you,

gary

nothing helps the life of a trans more than changing the fluid. save your money on the additives, just use the right fluid and change it more often than specified. some one posted a while back that they do a drain and fill on the trans every time they do a drain and fill on the engine oil. this may sound excessive but if you are doing it your self it only adds the cost of ~gallon of ATF at every oil change.

no additives period. any suggestion for you to use an additive right now is purely anecdotal, not the best way to make a decision. it can not help you. have the fluid professionally changed.
