Lucas Stops Slip question
« on: Dec 16, 2011, 01:57:26 PM »
Hey guys. Has anybody used Lucas Stops Slip? I have a 1999 F250 7.3 auto. My trans has started to slip a little bit, not bad, but I am about to partake in a 1400 mile road trip and I don't want to get stranded. Is the Lucas Stops Slip a good temporary crutch or perhaps is there another product that might be better? I know there isn't any bottled magical solution for a permanent fix, but I need to make it to Cheyenne, WY. from Marietta, GA., then I'll be able to have it rebuilt. Thank you in advance for any helpful comments. 

I already tried a forum search... the search engine is down :snare:

There is no such thing as a fix in a can id like for lucas to go out of business. Ive fixed countless engines with thieir "stop leak" and that garbage ruins heads, and makes blocks take 2 tankings or more to get clean. Its a band aid, nd a staph covered one at that. Some ppl hve good luck with it, but you won catch any machinst or anyone who really cares about their vehicle using it.

No offense 86bobbedtoy, i just happen to disagree

well it did and is working.

and I agree with you, I have seen blocks with water ports 99% plugged, heater cores plugged up solid, and so on.

I would rather fix my motor, but on trannys it is a cheap fix.

I had a front seal leaking once in a mr2 and tryed some seal leak fix by stp
and instantly the leak was twice as bad,

but the lucas trans stop slip has worked for us, had bad tc shutter and now its gone
so I can say from experience it has worked for us,
might not work in all slipping applications tho.

theres a differance there spark. stop leak is chemicle formed to gum up when it mixes with the antifreeze or water. thats how it stops leaking.  on the other hand i have changed heads rads cores and hoses on countless vehicles that had never had stop leak in them and they were still plugged solid.

Stop slip is not like this it works with your tranny fluid not aginst it to help it do just whats its called stop slipping ive only ever seen it NOT work once and that was a 88 c1500 and reverse and neutral were fused to gether so oviously it wasnt gonna help that situation.  so yea no worrys should last you the trip and then some

Yeah im gonna stay in the boat that only adds oil, gas, water coolant, and either gear oil or atf to their vehcles, you cann add whatever you want o yours.

Dudes used to put sawdust in trannys to quiet em down, and eggs in the rad to stop leaks, those worked too, prob ucks for the dudes that had to fix it right down the road though

Well, I'm not for putting additives into a rig.  Get AAA or towing on your insurance.  And drive the snot out of it.  Most of your drive is flat, so you should be fine.  Just remember when driving up long steep grades, to downshift out of O/D.  Your trans will love you more.  Anytime I start climbing a slight hill, I take my vans trans out of O/D, and into Drive.  It doesn't over work the trans, by shifting alot.

I've made this drive a couple dozen times, never with a slipping trans though, so I guess I'm a little nervous about getting home to where I can rebuild it, I'm looking for a crutch, not a magically bottled permanent fix. I do have towing on my insurance but that would only get me 75 miles closer of the 1400 and stuck in some highway town with my truck in the shop and me in a motel for a couple days. Thanks 86bobbedtoy, I think roll the dice and give it a shot.
