Thanks for posting.
I know of many people that use many different things in Chrysler transmissions. Everything from polyglycols to PAO synthetics to miracle polymers. The issue is compatability with the materials used by Chrysler in making the transmission.
Second, transmission fluids are made to control friciton, not eliminate it. You can decrease performance and mileage with the wrong fluid. You can also decrease transmission life.
Therefore, any chemistry that is not approved by the OEM I do not recommend.
My first concern is: do no harm.
