Sounds like another of those so called quick fix scams. No putting something like than in a tranny will reduce the fluids lubracation quality and finish destroying the tranny altogether. The only product that has had any results that I have seen is called TransX, it is a cleaner and seal softener, you add a quart during the normal servicing and if it can help it will, but it is still only temporary so don't expect too much.
