Valvoline Max Life Works!

Pulled my radiator to clean it over the weekend and when topping the trans off afterward I used a quart of Valvoline Max life trans fluid. The truck had shutters when upshifting before (mostly in the lower gears) and I figured a quart of Max-Life wouldn't hurt. The shuttering is totally gone and the trans shifts better all around, try it if you're having issues, it may help!
