Hy -Gard Trans Fluid,John Deere
I was talking to a guy with a newer Dodge truck and he was saying this trans fluid,Hy-Gard from John Deere is been put in a lot of thier truck trans as it provides better lub and less wear then reg oil. Here is what he says,[If Randy is correct and he usually is, we don't need to change oil in the trans until we have 300K(!!!) on it. He says watch the oil color. If it turns brown then change it and find out what is wrong. Otherwise let it alone as long as everything is working properly. He did say that there will be NO scum like you get with ATF because the better lubrication stops clutch wear. He also said that even after 300K(!!!) the cleanliness of the trans will shock you].
I wonder if this stuff will work in our trucks, my friend says his truck shifts way firmer now with no slippige towing his 5th wheel and trans temps our down.
