Q: What ATF do you recommend?

For any transmission, we recommend any ATF+4 that meets or exceeds OEM Specifications. For Aisin transmissions, we only recommend Mopar ASRC Fluid or Mobil 3309. We carry both approved fluids in stock.

We do not recommend Amsoil, as this can cause issues with the friction materials.

Q: How do I return my core / How long for my core refund?

Once your new transmission is installed, you need to ship your core back in the tote/crate it was shipped in. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE DRAINED YOUR TRANSMISSION AND CONVERTER.

They will email you a Bill Of Lading (BOL) Print out a copy for your records and one for the driver. A truck will be dispatched to your location within a day or two. Once the transmission arrives back at our Utah facility, we will go over it and submit it for refund. Please allow 1-2 weeks for processing. Your core refund will be sent back via certified letter will be sent to your address on file. PLEASE NOTE: IF WE DEEM THERE IS EXCESSIVE TRANSMISSION FLUID IN THE SHIPPING CONTAINER, A CLEANING FEE OF $150 WILL BE DEDUCTED FROM YOUR REFUND.

500 break-in with 30k Service intervals. Do not tow before the 500 mile break-in. We do offer Service Kits; which are available on our website.

2 quarts in converter, 8 in transmission. Start truck, wait 10 seconds and then shut off. Add 8 more quarts, start truck and engage reverse for 5 seconds- followed by drive for 5 seconds.
