Default Transmission woes?

Hey Fellas, I have a 2011 with 10k miles and yesterday I added about 6 to 8 ounces of Lucas transmission additive and after I first added it the truck would shutter and be sluggish to up shift during WOT. After about 10 minutes, the Transmission seems normal and fine now. Should I take it in to the dealer or just leave it be? Anyone have any experience with this stuff? Thanks

Simple, If it's not broke don't fix it!

Why would you put an additive in a perfectly working transmission? Who knows what that sh*t does! All the hype they advertise on that bottle of additive is pure BS. I would do a flush and refill with the proper fluid and leave the damn thing alone.

Running a mechanical shop for years, we did try this stuff on trannys that had some minor issues. Have to say it worked wonders. Always seeming to cure what was happening, (when it wasnt a major issue) But this was always on trannys with many many miles.
Dont think I would ever put it in my Ram, but I also maintain things to stock or beter levels.

Don't tell them you put that shit in your trans. If they know, you have no warranty. Never, never, never put anything in your engine or trans that is not factory recommended. Waste of money, no matter what it says on the label.
