Just two bottles down the tranny dip stick pipe, and you're good to go.

sigh...here we go again...

buy two bottles at a mopar parts counter, I couldn't find them at Dodge dealers but the chysler dealer had plenty in stock. $3.05 per bottle (use two) and just take out your transmission stick and pour down the tube, you will feel the results in a day or two

Does the anti foam go good in any mopar tranny?
If so, I just want to know what kind of feel to expect, or how it differs from a tranny without the anti foam liquid?

Thanks guys, let me know

As far as I know the anti foam is ok to use in any dodge, chrysler, etc. It seems to reduce the amount of foam (air bubbles) which is caused by fluid being agitated by the transmission.....here's a very rough idea

Pour a glass off beer, rub your finger on your forehead, and the stick it in the beer foam. The foam head will immediately breakdown and in a few seconds, you can drink your beer. Same principal. The anti foam breaks down the air bubbles so the transmission fluid can continue to operate at it's maximum efficiency.

the anti-foam acts to firm up the shift, I like to call it an under $10 shift kit, not an uncomfortabel hard shift, just a noticable improvement

Mopar recommends the anti-foam for vehicles that tow be them Intrepids, caravans or trucks so it will work for all Mopar transmissions

I agree completely. It is the best improvement available for the cars. (The price don't hurt either).

I put some in the car and it made a huge difference to my 'spirited' driving.
