  • Automatic Fluid

    I called Quaker State (1 800 458 4998) and asked about the automatic fluid. He said Dextron lll is compatiable back to type A fluid . He said he did not know why ATF fluids say 1988 and newer cars. What do we do, I need to add one QT. Thats what has leaked out in 18 months., 1983,

            I have always ran type fa trans fluid. The trans in my Lark has the borg warner flightomatic. Just like the f@$s ran. Why run the brand X type fluid? DEXRON I've been running FA type fluid since I was 16 and I'm 44 now. My car is a daily driver. Oh yeah, I only drive Studes. The standard valves handle unleaded fuel just fine. Even if you race it!

              laughinlark, I understand 'F' automatic fluid is OK if that's what is in the car to begin with, correct me if I am wrong. Sounds like all is well with your Studie, have a Studie Day![8D]

                Curt, we had an old-time trans expert (who was also a former Borg-Warner employee responsible for the development of the Flight-O-Matic) at our club meeting a couple months back. I asked him about this, and he recommended Dexron unequivocally. Said that Type F will work and provide a firmer shift, but that the friction modifiers in it might cause faster wear. You _can not_ mix the two types.
