I've heard that the red dye in TranSynd discolors fairly rapidly but the fluid remains a-okay from a couple of people now.

I've been told that International Harvester has a TES-295 fluid that is approved by Allison that costs about half what transynd does. I too changed over to transynd when I installed the deep pan and long filter. Next time I will check out IH.

The TES-295 fluid your referring to is not the International Harvestor/Case IH, but International Trucks and the price that has been around here in in line with the Transynd and Delvac Synthetic ATF. I forget who makes it for them though.

This fluid is rated for 75,000 miles under severe conditions and 150,000 under normal conditions. And that is in the Busses and heavy trucks!

I did a complete tranny flush (very easy, look in the Do it Yourself Articles on Dieselplace). Now I change the spin-on filter once a year. Got over 70,000 miles on the fluid and I am not worried. Don't waste your money! SPICER
I work on Prevost busses for a living and our recommended "severe" duty (which means use of a transmission retarder) is 50k and 75k regular duty (no retarder only Jake Brake)IIRC. We use DD series 60 and Allison 4000 series 6 spd.

Here's a list of approved TES 295 of the Allison site:

Seems like the QuatraSyn is like the Torque Drive, where it hasn't been approved as TES 295, but the manufacturer states to use it where TES 295 is recommended.

FYI... BP now owns Castrol so I'm sure the two fluids will be the same.

Transynd Pricing

I bought 5 gallons of Transynd yesterday at the Ally dealer here in Fort Lauderdale for $159.00 tax inc. I plan on doing the "Hoot" flush this weekend. Last weekend I changed the front and rear differential with Amsoil 75W90, the Transaxel with the stealers transaxle juice at just less than $9.00 a quart, the fuel filter and an oil change. The stealer wanted $300.00 to change the front and rear differential. I paid $89.00 for 7 quarts of Amsoil and did it myself. The thread on this forumn really helped, it was easier than changing the oil, the "pump" that I bought with the 75W90 was the cat's meow. I don't post much, just wanted some of you guys that hire your work out to know that it is not that hard to maintain your Awesome Duramax/Allison yourself, save money, and get that "good feeling from doing your own work. Thanks to all of you who post "how to" threads, it really helps us shade tree mechanics

It looks like I found the most expensive place in GA to buy my Transynd! I just went and bought it about an hour ago at "Peach State Trucks Centers." With filter it was $191.56, OUCH! I would still rather pay that and flush it myself than pay the almost $700 the stealer wants to do it. That means their charging about $500 bucks labor to flush and fill. Oh I almost forgot the dealer was also going to grease all fittings and check "Vital components." Give me a break! It takes me about 15 minutes crawl around under the truck and grease all fittings so that means it takes them about 2 minutes on a lift. I am sure by check vital components they mean they will look at certain items and see if they look wore. I hate dealerships!
