I know that many people use Valvoline Max Life fluid for transmission fluid change,as far as i know it is same specs as bmw approved esso oil.Any experiences with Valvoline?
Interestingly, Valvoline used to say compatible with LT71141 (used in the ZF 5HP19 transmission), however, they no longer show this on the specs on their website. Mobil 1 used to say the same thing and also no longer claims that. I used the VW version of 71141 when I changed my fluid.
