What you all think about lucus trans fix ?
Its going in a slipping BMW 325i (e46) w 190k on the clock.
Sometimes before warm it won't even move. After it warms up it gets much better.
Car only worth about 2k.
Transmission rebuild more than that.
Already done that.I don't have any faith in that thick Lucas stuff. At your mileage, I doubt that any additive is going to give you any long term solution to your transmission issue. It will not add material back onto worn out parts such as clutches.A pan drop and filter change would be worth a try and you can see if there is a lot of clutch debris laying on the bottom of the pan.
This, 100%.Try changing the filter and fluid first, if that doesn't help the unit probably needs internal repairs. Snot in a bottle isn't going to fix this, if you don't want to spend much money on it put a used one in it, they go for 300-500 and is easy to swap in this car.
If the rest of the car is in decent shape it is worth doing IMO.
I use it in older aluminum transfer cases that call for ATF. I like the fluid to be just a little thicker especially in a worn unit. Never had any luck with it in a transmission that already had problems.
Interesting, I wonder if it reacts the same way with ATF?It likely turns into an aerated frothy mess in those T-cases BTW. There used to be a video on here "back in they day" where the original Bob ran Shaeffers gear lube against plain gear lube and then gear lube + Lucas and the amount of air in the Lucas blend was insane.

That is Lucas oil stabilizer, not Lucas transmission fix. It is very clear from the photograph. They are two completely different products.
That is a wild guess on your part with nothing to back it up. At least you admit you have represented one Lucas product as a different product. The CAS numbers are different. The viscosities are wildly different 48 cSt versus 110 cSt. Density is different. The texture is different, the transmission fix is very sticky. It has seal conditioners in it.
