I Did It!!!g56 Gear Rollover About Gone!!!

Well...finally got enough of the G56 Gear Rollover after the removal of my DMF, i took some advice and added 1 QT of Lucas Transmission Fix...It says it's compatible with all trans fluids and light duty manual trannys also. I removed a plug at the top of my tranny and just added 1 QT of the Lucas, did not remove any fluid...Now for the good part, i notice a tremendous difference, about 40 to 50 percent of the gear rollover is gone, it shifts great and even seems quiter in neutral..seems to have lost some of the neutral rattle....I'v only put about 20 miles on it since i added it, but so far im satisfied...im thinking about adding another half QT maybe a hole one..Ill report back when i get some more miles on the fluid addition..

Be careful if you overfilled it too much. You could be creating bubbles in the oil which reduces shear/lubrication and increases temperature...

but question where or who did you get the idea to add the lucas fluid with out taking any out. I like the LESS rollover noise but like mentioned if the fluid level gets to high it will aerate and loose lubrication properties.

I had a buddy that had read somewhere that some guys where removing a sensor up top of the tranny and adding 2 qts due to some rear bearing oiling issues. Some guys had reported rear bearings burning up. They were saying the fluid level from Chrysler was not adaquite and all was good after the fluid level increase... not sure if thats the case with the G56..(May not be a bad idea to drop a qt before adding the Lucas)

Fyi

I paid $12 at Napa for a Qt....It was a pain to get in their, had to do some rigging with some tube and heated the fluid in some hot water to help it flow a bit better (Very Thick) but all was well worth it!!!

When the G56 was first introduced it had issues with failures and a hold was put on building anymore trucks with the manual until the cause was found to be not enough oil, so they raised the level and that failure stopped.
