CONSUMER ALERT - Tri Star ATF is labeled as a Type A fluid, which is not recommended for vehicles built after 1966. The product label does not adequately warn consumers of this very limited use, and the fluid may cause harm if used in modern transmissions. In addition, the test results for this sample show unusually high levels of silicon, potassium, sodium, aluminum, and iron, indicating that this product may contain used and/or contaminated oil.
