first set this car / universal average for 15.5K miles Aluminum - 81 / 23 Chromium - 1 / 1 Iron - 82 / 70 Copper - 8 / 18 Lead - 1 / 4 Tin - 0 / 1 Molybdenum - 1 / 1 Nickel - 0 / 0 Manganese - 1 / 1 Silver - 0 / 0 Titanium - 0 / 0 Potassium - 0 / 1 Boron - 235 / 192 Silicon - 13 / 14 Sodium - 3 / 7 Calcium - 360 / 367 Magnesium - 228 / 147 Phosphorus - 3 / 75 Zinc - 349 / 254 Barium - 4 / 4 SUS viscosity - 43.8 / 43-51 Flashpoint = 335 / >335 Water = 0 / <0.1 I think ~30K miles on this fluid, since last drain/fill. Total mileage on vehicle, 70.5K miles. additional considerations; one time incident where i gassed the car in neutral, thinking it was in drive, then put in in drive without waiting for rpms to fall back to idle. Basically car inadvertently neutral dropped at ~2k rpms. car is occasionally power stalled up to 2k rpms for fun. [Razz] car also makes +20 lb-ft at wheels over stock. [Razz]

Yes, that's the only one that's really out of line. The report says AL is from the torque converter. I guess if I kill that, i have an excuse to try a rebuilt high stall one. [Razz] btw, which material indicates the wear on the clutch packs.

A particle count VOA/UOA might help in determining clutch pack wear. Unless you see material in the old fluid, don't worry about clutch wear. I would practice a more frequent drain/refill regimen since it is only a partial fluid change.
