I didn't notice any additional leaks in the BJ8 when I put Redline MTL in 3
years ago.  However, I certainly did when I put it in the 100.

As a result I put the slightly heavier Redline MT90 in the 100. Still leaks as
much as with normal 30 wt non-detergent, but not more!  :-)

and it definitely found a few places to start leaking.  drained it out and
replaced with ND30.  still oozes but no real leaks now.  anyone else
experience this?  i might try it again since the trans had new gaskets then
and maybe they have sealed up better by now.   hjim
