Exclamation Mobile 1 Synthetic transmission fluid

So I have used Mobil1 EP on my car since the first oil change and Mobil1 oil filter is a must especially in LA traffic. I have maintained my car very well and done everything on time. I am due for tranny service and I am not sure which is better, the Stealer tranny fluid or the Mobil 1 synthetic for tranny. Has anyone used the Mobil one synthetic tranny fluid in their A/T tranny yet? Results? Will it cause any problems to the tranny (knowing how frail V6 Automatic transmitions can be)?

I would appreciate inputs very much.
BTW I am driving a 2004 V6 with A/T

Can't speak to quality, however, if there is ever a recall and you are caught with that no recall for you!

Thanks for your input. I was super worried about the recall so I called American Honda Comapny several times and had them check my VIN to see If I was effected. I got Extended warranty as well so,,, Thats why I am worried.

I know, I was expecting that too however, OEM engine Oil VS Mobil1 Very Big difference in quality of oil. I assumed there would be this difference in here as well

Ah that's another thing I need to do! Damn you Chad always reminding me things I need to do

BTW, did you change out the tranny fluid yourself or have a shop do it? I could only imagine what my Honda dealership would do if I brought in a GM product lol...

I've heard its money and we've done everything else (ss kit, bushings, weighted knob) so this is the last thing I need to do with the tranny. Hmm, have to see if I can get my buddy to help me out because i've got to do this soon. Did you just buy it straight from a local GM dealership or did you find a better price on line? Thanks!

Use OEM honda for tranney. It has a higher silicon base which doesn't break down for AT. If your Manuel either use OEM or Redline. Redline is about 10 bucks a bottle.

Drain and fill is 3 quarts. I just did it. Also use OEM fluid only on the AT trannys.

Yea I'm pretty sure its the right part number. I think I found it searching on the site so I guess verify before ordering just to make sure. Glad I found it, appears much cheaper than other sites.

Check out that link Chad, looks to be a very good price from what I have read.
yep, thats the stuff good find!

thats pretty damn cheap. normal price is around 15 bucks a bottle which is what i usually pay if i go straight to the GMC dealer. if i were you guys, id jump on it. rumor has it that they are discontinueing the friction modified version =/


chad and mark you guys need to do this, its one of the simplest things you can do for your car and you will notice a substantial change in the way your tranny shifts its GOOOOD stuff!!

oh, and its 2.7 qts, BUT a full drain and 3 qt fill will do. the extra .3 wont hurt anything. its a very easy DIY too
