Transynd

Well, I bit the bullet and switched to Allison synthetic Transynd tranny fluid. Everyone says it's the greatest thing since sliced bread, tranny runs cooler, lasts longer, longer drain interval. I was at 5K, time for a new spin-on, so I figgered what the heck???

Sure hope it was worth the $341 bucks!

Its the rigth thing to do. But why 341 bucks??????/ Transynd came in your 07 stock, and if you just changed the spin on you shouldnt have had to even add any. When I changed the one on my truck, It didnt move at all on the dop stick. Ps did you remember to put the little doughnut magnet on the new filter?

I'm not sure if TranSynd is truely a superior product or if Allision is simply making enough money on the per quart license fees to cover any possible warranty claims.

Mine didn't come with Transynd. It came with ordinary ATF oil. It had to be flushed of the mineral oil, then have Transynd and a new filter spun on. That's why it was costly. They charged me 2 hrs labor, $40 for a filter and like $200 for Transynd and tax.

Our 6 Speed Allison Transmisions take Dextron 6, Transynd is a Dextron 3 fluid which is in the 5 speeds.

Are you saying Transynd doesn't belong in an Allison 6-speed?

No NO no, your 6spd allison did come w/transynd, I don tknow who told you it didnt. Dex ron 6 is ok but usually not any cheaper then transynd. Transynd is not dex 3. Transynd has friction modifiers etc to help deal w/the clutches, of the allison. Transynd wont cause any warrenty problems, after all it is their fluid, made by castrol for them
