That's what I have used before.
Most trans are painted when bought online. Probably due to the corrosion problem of a freshly cleaned case. Funny but if you ran it behind an oil leaker it will preserve the finish under the gunk. In Florida the cars rust from the top down if they sit too long outside. The condensation is brutal here. It collects under the roof and hood then runs down to the edges. Plus salt in the air B/C we are surrounded by Ocean. Up north cars sit for ever and stay pretty well intact except for the salt from the roads that kill the underside.
Fluid film does not stink. It actually has rather pleasant odor and is non toxic and lanolin based. It will last a long time ad what little odor there is goes away very quickly.
I didn't know about fluid film...went to the parts store and got some. Spray it on the engine and tranny and wiped it down. I'm happy with this stuff...the transmission is a little more "wet" than I would like it....but it's shiny and doesn't have the oxidization on it now that it did. Thanks for the help on everything everyone
Give it another good wipe down after a couple of days to keep it from attracting dirt. From an oxidation perspective it is better to leave a light film on, but it will get dirty faster.
Fluid film is a great lubricant and works where you would use PB blaster or any other penetrating oil as well. I use it on anything that I would use WD 40 on or light oil/grease such as door hinges or hood hinges .great stuff.
I think fluid film stinks. But I've been using it on some things, seems to work ok
FLUID FILM does not have any particular bad smell .....from my 5 year history of using
Fluid Film meant to be a Rust Inhibitor not a penetrating fluid like Kroil or PB Blaster
Last week I bought a Gallon of Alumnum Brightner from NAPA part # 1478 (mfg by MAC's)
for cleaning some oxidazation from an Aluminum Racing Radiator Fins......
Sprayed from hand pump spray bottle, left on 30-45 seconds and hosed off
with Hot Water
Ordered At NAPA online $15.00 and picked up at my local NAPA.....
Smells like hand lotion to me...not that bad
Blast it with crushed walnut shells.
Try quick-glo original formulation.
It is an abrasive, but with mild use will not bring out a polish.
Also, it leaves a wax, which helps with keeping this clean.
It works well on intake manifolds, which usually look best natural, and are commonly seen.
