                  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?

                                              I have a 2012 Toyota highlander 3.5l v6 with 135 k Miles on it and I use mobil 1 extended performance and for every maintenance I do on the vehicle I use the most expensive fluids for everything the thing works like new I do my oil change every 3000 miles even when it is golden I bet my car will last longer than his 😂

                                                On one video you say don't listen to the don't change your atf crap and on this video you're saying leave it alone.
                                                You're confusing us

                                                          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.
