Which lube guard product are you guys using exactly. I went to the site and there are 5 or so more products listed. I generally only have the shudder when in D5 driving less than 60mph. So, city driving I keep it in D4 then highway flip it up to D5...

That is how I am surviving.

Mike

Just wanted to check back and report that I'm sill going strong at 150k! The cooler, swapping external tranny filter, and the 3x fluid change along with periodic changes using Valvoline MaxLife appears to do the trick. No shudders. Amazing.

Great news! I got rid of my shudder with lubegard and DW1 honda fluid. I'm hoping that this will be even better with the 3rd and 4th pressure sensor swap I'm planning on doing.

Can someone talk more about this lubegard?
Do you just add some to the existing trans fluid?

It's just a high additive ATF fluid that has some magic inside of it - simply add a bottle to the ATF you're putting in.

Other fluids

You guys should all change your transfer case fluid if you have a 2003+. I didn't even know it existed until I saw it in the forums. I had never even been told or asked to perform the service by the dealer and my care has over 142k on it. After changing (same 3x3 as ATF) I have noticed a considerable reduction in transmission noise, including what the the dealer had said was a transmission or TC noise.

Guys..the dealer wants $10 for a liter of the ATF fluid, is that reasonable?

You need 18mm aluminum or copper crush washers. I prefer copper ones since they are a little softer than aluminum and provide a better seal.

Those are a dime a dozen on Ebay.
