I have been using honda fluid in my 02 since the beginning and got 182k before It started to slip and I got it rebuilt. I have read on here and on the BITOG forums that a lot of people are using MaxLife or Amsoil with great results. I have decided that I am going to switch over in hopes of getting the most out of the trans. which fluid would you say is the best for a rebuilt trans Maxlife, Amsoil or mobil1 and should I add lubegard red to the mix. I do not do any towing and do plan to add a magnefine and a cooler real soon. I am leaning towards the maxlife plus lubegard red Iam just looking to get some more opinions on the best fluid.
