Response to It's the "abrasives" contained within ATF that...

Abrasives? Really? Seems like a good way to ensure the need to replace A/T often.

My understanding is that the detergents in the ATF, which is simply a very refined oil, do the cleaning. A great way to un-stick piston rings, for instance, is to substitute a quart for part of your oil for a while.

I didn't know ATF contained any abrasives, but hey, even at 40 I learn something new all the time.
