Replacement for Esso ATF
Hello. About three years ago, you listed your synthetic ATF as a suitable replacement for Esso™ fluid in the transmission of my 2001 BMW 740iL. You even guaranteed that your ATF met all the requirements and was acceptable. However, now, the Esso fluid is no longer on your list, and in your BMW questions page, you specifically say that it DOESN'T meet the requirements. Why do you no longer recommend your ATF as a replacement for the Esso fluid?
