NEVER EVER use Dex6. Not compatible with SATURN trans. Saturn trans are not GM trans. Need to get that fluid out ASAP.

Correct, that fluid will aid in ejecting the differential pin from the transmission. OldNuc has said it can cause cone separation on the synchros also.

Default Re: 200k

I ran my auto for 50k miles on dex 6 -- no ill effects whatsoever. I have since changed back to dex/merc.

This was when dex 6 was just released and it was touted as a direct replacement for dex 3.

I'd drain it, though.

...
Mechanical Engineer - I make parts, like blend door actuator gears.

2005 Volvo S40 T5 AWD - 62k
1998 SL2 - 240k
1993 Geo Tracker 4x4 - 134k
1996 Geo Tracker 4x4 - 106k
1987 Mercedes 300D - 154k

I have been looking for a fluid that will work since GM stopped the rights to making dex 3....anybody find one that actually works without killing the the trans? And by the way..now I think I know why my old tranny failed...went to the dealership to buy new fluid..did not know about the dex 6 issue..That Is What They Sold Me.. Live and learn...
