There are products available for all vehicle components that are lubricated. Jilcat has a product for any type vehicle built. 2 cycle, 4 cycle, diesel, gas, natural gas engines. High performance, exotic, racing, synthetics included. There are products for cleaning fuel systems all the way to the convertors. We have products for weapons, farm equipment, large machinery, fabrication equipment and hydraulic systems. If it is metal and needs lubrication Jilcat Proline has the products.
There are 4 non synthetic blends for transmissions:
1. Automatic Transmission – for the standard 4 or 5 speed auto transmission you find in most vehicles from the last 20 years.
2. CVT – for all CVT transmissions on the market
3. Chrysler +4 – Almost all Chrysler non CVT vehicles use a +4 auto transmission fluid, please verify what is called for by the manufacturer before adding any of the conditioner products
4. Dual Clutch – many of the 6 to 8 speed transmissions and the multi shift (paddle shift) transmissions have a dual clutch setup that requires a different blend to function properly.
All are available in synthetic and synthetic blends as well.
*Check the manufacturer specifications for fluid to be sure the correct conditioner is used.
Add one bottle of the correct Transmission Conditioner to the transmission fluid. DO NOT OVERFILL If you are draining the torque converter you can add a bottle to the convertor and a bottle to the transmission case as well.
If the transmission fluid is burned or dark, service the transmission and change the filter then replace the fluid using one bottle of Transmission Conditioner as part of the fluid quantity required on the fill. In my experience servicing a high mileage transmission usually causes more harm so we resist servicing if possible over 100K miles.
If the transmission is sealed you can remove a small amount of the fluid and pump in a bottle of the Transmission Conditioner. Most dealers service the sealed transmission and add the conditioner at that time.
In each situation the vehicle needs to be immediately driven 30 to 50 miles to allow the molecular process to take place and the “gunk” buildup to begin to dissolve.
We suggest GOOGLE the transmission for issues prior to any service. I have found many of todays transmissions have bulletins and may just require a computer update to correct a shift problem. The Acadia, Enclave, Terrain transmission has TSB’s involving the Wave Plate and if caught before 120,000 miles can be repaired by the dealership at little or no cost.
Pour 1 bottle into the fuel tank with 15 to 20 gallons of fuel. Best if the bottle is poured into the tank PRIOR to filling the tank to allow for blending before starting. Drive the vehicle as usual. If the vehicle has failed an emissions test, add the bottle to less fuel (10 to 12 gallons) and drive the vehicle 50 to 100 miles to allow the process to clean the system and effect the EGR and converters before returning for a retest.
The fuel product will lubricate the fuel pump and clean the buildup of gum, varnish or other gunk from the tank to the converters as the treated fuel is run through the system. The injectors or throttle body will be cleaned to bare metal and remain clean for several thousand miles.
