    Exactly, everyone has a preferance. I've run regular atf, royal purple atf, royal purple sycormax and now pennzoil/gm sycromesh. So far I like the pennzoil/gm sycromesh the best, it smoother shifting than all the rest, but thats just my opinion.

    Thumbs up cheap fluid transfer

    Take the lid from a gear lube bottle and put it on the atf, us some clear tubing, cheap stuff at the hardware store to get fluid in the fill hole and just squeeze the bottle. Worked for me.

    Get the pump. I tried it and all you do is make an F'ing mess.

    Just did the sevice yesterday, very easy. The old fluid was defintly worn, shifts a little smoother, the pump thing worked great. I would be weary of bring tranny fluid into my car to dump thru the shifter. Spend the extra 8 bucks and buy the pump thingy,
    I think he means that it would BLOW to accidentally drop or spill ATF in the car-and I would have to agree.
