It's Full Syn now, the old stuff used to be a blend that we got here in Canada for some odd reason.

Nice! They have/had it on shelves in Quebec? I had to order it from walmart.ca here in Ontario. As Farmer said, the stuff I got was not advertised as a full synthetic but mentioned synthetic base stocks or something vague like that. I was a little disappointed that I was going to have to switch to castrol multi vehicle but now I can sleep well at night dreaming about that FS maxlife atf. thumbsup

Hmmm! Here in the States, (as far as I know), the MaxLife "OIL"(Red jug) is & has been a syn blend however, the MaxLife "ATF"(Red jug) has always been a full synthetic ATF.

ML been available through Walmart.com ~3 business day delivery ~$17.90/gal in store pick up since not long after it was removed from shelves. I did notice today one area WM had it in stock, but that's currently out of the norm.

Not on bottle, but is still "suitible for use in" Mercon V applications per the spec sheet.

Nice to see it's back.

Has anyone used this in a Mercon V application? More specifically a 4R70?

The local " Marts " were out of stock . When it became avalable on their website , I ordered 2 jugs , shipped to the local store .

This was several months ago .

Bought it to do a spill & fill for our 1991 Caprice 5.0 l .

It is in my '02 F150 right now (for about 20,000 miles).

I have done 3 drain and fills on it (I installed a drain plug on the transmission pan) using Maxlife ATF.
First time (when I installed the drain plug and changed the filter) I used Supertech Merc V.
I had 167,000 miles on the transmission (never serviced) and was having a little "thud" sometimes between 3 and OD.
After the pan drop and filter change with ~5 qts of ST Merc V, it was almost completely gone.
About 500 miles later, I did a drain and fill using the Maxlife (4 qts) and the thud was completely gone.
I have done 2 more drains (1000 miles later, then 10,000 miles) and no issues with the transmission at all.
I am actually about due for another drain and fill (I am doing it every 10,000 miles now) and have some Maxlife ATF in the garage for that.

DW-1 is not listed on the new label he posted. Where are you getting this from?

EDIT:
http://content.valvoline.com/pdf/maxlife_atf.pdf

So it is spec'ed for DW-1 but they didnt put it on the new labels.
