Wondering who has used this product with success and what was the best manner to use it. Kind of a long shot but I am willing to give it a shot. 2001 Sable transmission is slipping. Cannot climb my steep hill driveway anymore.

Any other products that might help would be appreciated as well. Not expecting it to work but a rebuilt transmission has been quoted $4 - 4,500 and a used one $2,5 - 3,000. Car is simply not worth that much so it may be scrap if no cheaper alternatives can be found.

Have you checked your transmission fluid or recently done a pan drop and filter change?

Try the Bars Transmission Repair that comes in the weird two part bottle. That fixed a transmission for me once. Fixed it completely after about 20 minutes of driving with it in there and that "repair" lasted months.

Idk if the Rislone product is any different since Bars and Rislone are the same company.

Rislone and Bars are one in the same company. I'd try the trans filter and fluid change first. Then add something...

This is the Bar's product: https://barsleaks.com/product/transmission-repair-1400/

No fluid was not changed recently was planning to do a transmission fluid change in the spring. Now it's slipping so I will do a fluid change and try an additive such as Bars or Rislone product and will look into the Trans - X too. Hoping for a low cost solution to get me by a little longer. 2001 with 175,000 miles. Like the car but not enough to put more into than it's worth.

Try the fluid change first. You might not need any additives.

I recently had success reviving a weak Honda transmission. It was shifting lazily and at low rpms, flaring on 2-3 and 3-4 upshifts. Here's what I did:

a) Added about 3~4 ozs of Chemtool B-12 to trans.
b) Let my 16 year old step-son practice parallel parking it for about an hour (this really helped!)
c) Next morning it was dramatically better (alternatively, drive it a week wink ).
d) Did a drain and fill with MaxLife, drove it another week.
e) Drained/filled again with Lubegard ATF

The transmission is now excellent, no flare, shifts firmly and at much better shift points - much higher than before. Each of the three steps had a distinct impact (additive, 1st d/f with Maxlife, 2nd d/f with Lubegard). The trans. is only 6.9 qts and you get about 3 qts with each d/f, so this was a substantial fluid swap even though only two drain/fills. I'll do a third with more Lubegard in 10 or 15k miles.

IDK Honda's well but the cw is the seals in the valve body get hard and can't make adequate line pressure. My experience seems to validate that as seal conditioning would happen with each step. I can't say if that's your problem, but this sure worked for me, but it wasn't as bad as your situation.

We had a 1991 Taurus with a bad transmission. Ford replaced it because it failed with fewer than 60K and was a Ford Program Car (a Budget Rent-A-Car fleet return).

Were they bad for 10 years of production?

I'd use one of the Lubeguard additive products before using Rislone. Lubeguard knows transmission and their stuff has a good track record of actually improving your transmission.

I have the same car as you actually, I'd do the pan drop and make sure you use Mercon V, but you'll get out less than half of the fluid. Have you ever topped off the tranny with, or used, a non Mercon V fluid?

No, it's a related but different transmission that was improved and pretty reliable, unless you use anything other than Mercon V...

This might help if you have Dex/Mercon III in it or something: Lubegard

But it has to be Mercon V. Not just any Dex/Merc.

You can also buy an aftermarket transmission pan for less than $50 with a drain-plug in it...
