Re: Auto-trans lifesaving measures?
I'd agree with the filter, those are being put on newer vehicles as a stock item. However, I think the reservoir is overkill. If an oversize ATF pan were available that would be a better choice. Otherwise, there's more to break, lines to and from as well as fittings and the reservoir, itself.
The best thing you can do is install an extra ATF cooler. Keeping the ATF cool by far the best thing you can do to insure a long life for the transmission.
