One of my buddies who is a Mercedes Benz mechanic told me that Automatic Transmission Fluid is used by MBZ dealerships as linkage lube and for cable lube.
So I decided to give it a try. I went down to the local Wally World and picked up a quart of ATF for about $1.72. Then I got out one of my old contact lens solution bottles and headed out to the garage.
Popped off the top of the bottles and started pouring.
I then tested it on some brake cables…
And on the chain…
This actually worked pretty well and its alot cheaper than spending up to $10 for lube. Heck, a whole quart will last me for years!
