          Hahaa, Scotty said "Unless you live in a dust environment, leave the ATF alone" about the life time AFT in this 9 years old video. But all the new videos, Scotty recommend changing AFT very 50K miles regardless of what the manufacturer said.

              Scotty makes the best car videos. Only thing I noticed is that in his newer videos he suggests you change the atf regardless of if it’s lifetime fluid or not

                                In regards engine oil in a pre- computer car such as my 1991 Honda Accord, is it safe to use synthetic oil when it was designed for petroleum-based lubrication 🙀?

                                    2016 Cammy with 47k miles. Fully synthetic oil every 8-10k miles. I maintain that. I only work 8 miles away. Very light use of the car. The dealer is stressing me to get a ton of maintenance work. Thanks for the video. Based on this info. I guessing continue oil changes, check and spray battery, and flush coolant. Anything else you reccomend I do?

                                                  In one of your other videos you said conventional oil can last 5 to 7 thousand miles but when you are changing your oil at 3000 in this car. Why is that?

                                                  Hi scotty

                                                  Isn’t it important to get the correct spec oil? For example, not all 5W-30 oils are the same.

                                                    He basically said check the owners manual. Some vehicles require particular additive packages to meet certain grade requirements or specific viscosities that may only be available in semi or full synthetics. Just read owners manual.

I have a used car and do not know my car's history for transmission changes. Just got it from the last month. Should I base the next transmission change at the mileage I bought it at?
