    Good Eveningtymusic
    Still new to this but read all kinds of B.S about Transmission Fluid in the Western Plows on some E-Net forum. The fluid gels:gunsfiring:? Yea right then every vehicle with a auto trans would be toast:cry:?My question is what is the best trans fluid to use or does it really matter as there are at least 3 different types and many different brands.I want to flush and fill and have read lots but would like some opinion to the best fluid or??:dizzy:All input is appreciated!:Thanks,Mike

    The best fluid is premium plow fluid. the atf will gel in cold temps due to paraffin separation. do some research and you'll find it's true.
