I just saw this thread (https://bobistheoilguy.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/topics/4508921#Post4508921) and it states that Mobil 1 ATF is being discontinued. Is this true? Can anyone confirm? If so, I need to stock up...

The only reference to its discontinuation I could find is from amazon.

What's so great about it? I typically avoid one-size-fits-all products.

How about asking them directly?

I've already sent them a message. We will see what they say. I wouldn't really consider this a one-size-fits-all ATF. It was always a DEX III fluid. But when DEX III was no longer a current standard they just changed the name. But if you read the data sheet, it is a Dex III fluid. I have a 2002 Toyota that calls for Dexron III so I've always used this ATF since new. 15 year and 200K+ miles later I'd prefer not to change if I don't have to.

I've used this ATF since about 1990 with very good results. I have never had a trans or PS pump fail with M1 ATF.

Call 1-800-ASK-Mobil. They are the first folks you should have contacted.

Maybe they are discontinuing it in favor of a new, lower-viscosity fluid that is more appropriate for today's specs?

Geeze. Ok. I tweeted at them before I posted the message. We'll see if they respond. I usually have better luck that way than calling a toll free number and getting some entry-level CSR.

So I called the "entry level CSR"(I-800-ASK-MOBIL) you speak of and he re-assured me all is well with M1 ATF, and is in production with no plans to stop. The last time I bought it( last spring) was at AAP. Cheers1
Bitog is often like the internet, can't believe everything you read.

Good to know. My 2002 Tacoma will be happy.

I used it for years in my 89 Accord. Honda used to highly recommend their own Z1 fluid, though, the dipstick on the Accord said "Dexron II." The transmission failed (bad slippage) at slightly over 300,000 miles. Would it have lasted longer using Honda's fluid? Who knows.

M1 ATF isn't that great anymore, given the competition. M1 ATF no longer meets some very important standards in modern transmissions.

There are better options out there, such as PP ATF, Castrol Full Synthetic, Maxlife, and all the other synthetic LV ATF's. The new formulas are backwards-compatible with the older specs with no problems smile

At 30,000 mile intervals. Given that I was using synthetic fluid that may have been excessive.

Actually it meets the requirements of Ford Mercon V. It also meets the requirements of the JASO 1-A specification, which is the basis for why I've been using it in Toyota and Honda transmissions. I have about 320,000 miles across 3 vehicles, all of which are still on their original transmissions.
