What Kind Of Transmission Fluid Does A Ford F250 Take WORK
Since most, if not all, classic Chevys with pre-electronic transmissions can safely use any of the Dexron variants, have you ever considered using Type-F fluid in your classic Chevy? The reason I ask is, Type-F fluid is formulated with a reduced friction modifier package with the goal to create quick clutch engagement and reduce clutch slippage. If that sounds like it will make the transmission perform better, that is because it does. Drag racers and many transmission rebuilders have been utilizing and recommending Type-F for decades to improve shift quality.

Contrary to an automatic transmission, the fluid in a manual system is not directly involved in changing gears, because it is a mechanical system, whereas an automatic transmission is hydraulic. If an automatic transmission does not have enough fluid, or the fluid has been contaminated, it is possible for the transmission to start to slip and eventually fail. If a manual transmission does not have enough fluid, or the fluid has been contaminated, it is possible for the transmission to become noisy, the internal parts to wear out faster and eventually for the transmission to fail.
Unlike an automatic transmission, a manual transmission does not contain a filter, which means that as components wear, the transmission fluid picks up particles of metal and is unable to filter them. This is why it is very important to perform a transmission fluid service as per manufacturer recommendations.
That's because it doesn't take long for a fluid starved transmission to begin to run really hot once they've reached a place they never should have been. While you never want to smell smoke when you're behind the wheel, there are some instances in which the scent of something really hot is more worrisome than others. This is one. 041b061a72
