Oil Change and Transmission Drain & Refill

Hey ya'll... I just got an oil change and requested 3 3/4 qts. of Valvoline oil. I provided them with Valvoline 5-20 Oil and a purolator oil filter. Then I also brought 3 quarts of Honda Automatic Transmission fluid and requested them to drain and refill that! After all was done and finished, I drove my car and it drove like a champ. It drove like a horse that was freed from any bondage. And my car was driving like it was freeeeeeeeeee freeeeeeeeeeeee.....it was going so fast and very spirited. It almost felt like a 'new' car.! I'm so glad that I changed those two fluids. Because before all this, I felt like my car lost so much power and that was constantly suffocating or something. As soon as I got those liquids changed on this Saturday morning, my car felt NEW again!! Yeah! You guys should go do the same whenever your car may feel slow and sluggish..change your liquids. Props to everyone who read, so go get your car maintained right now!!!!
