Default Lucas oil Transmission stop slip

i was wondering if anyone has ever tried this stuff out and if it actually works. ive read many reviews saying it works good, and ive read many reviews saying that all it does is gum up the whole transmission pan. i am looking for anyway to save my transmission considering the trannys in the impalas have a tendency to have problems, and mine has been whining for quite some time now in 1st gear

Lucas oil won't stop your converter from coming apart, which is the main reason our trannys "go bad".

is the converter the part causing the slight whine sometimes when starting from a stop in first gear at slow speeds?

how much of it did you put in your car when you changed the tranny fluid?
