So I just bought a mitsu Mighty Max 2wd truck. A/T, 2.0 liter stripped down truck. Has 98,000 miles. Bought it off of the original owner, an older man who only used it to drive to work before he retired years ago. The truck has been sitting with intermittent starts for 4 years. Obviously never used for towing, no scratches in the bed from hauling. Cherry. The question is this: the book calls for DEX II. So should I just use a regular old atf like ST dex/merc or should I use maxlife (which I love btw)? I guess i am worried that ML might be too "slippery" if thats possible, due to all of the friction mod additives, and the synthetic. Am I being stupid, or are my concerns valid? All suggestions and advice are appreciated, Thanks!
