i've got a 2001 v6 accord coupe.. and have been thinking about running Redline Synthetic Motor Oil - 10W30 and using Redline Synthetic Automatic Transmission Fluid. Its supposed to be better for the engine and the trannys runs alot cooler, with less friction. Wat do you'll use.???

i tried

i tried to use that synthetic stuff in my tranny. i have a honda accord 91 ex with 140,000 miles. i put it in like at 120,000 miles and i noticed a differnce. but after i checked it at 135,000 miles it was pure black. that tranny oil was pretty good, kept the temp down and everything. but it doesnt last long. i suggust if u use it then change it hella often otherwise go with oem

Actually Redline Synthetic Racing ATF is really good on the auto Accord tranny. If it wasn't for Redline Racing ATF and a tranny cooler, Comptech's prototype supercharged Accord's tranny would have not even lived though testing. I use the Racing ATF and I am satisified with the results.

I use redline race ATF. It shifts much quicker, not quite as smooth, but the clutches aren't sitting there drifting for 2 seconds waiting for the tranny to shift. I won't go back to another fluid unless my tranny starts acting up then I'll put stock in about an hour before I take my tranny in to get replaced, then about an hour after I get it back I'll put redline back in lol..
