Default VTI fluid Question

New guy here with a question. Looked back 5yrs and did not see anything in the thread about this. Sorry if there was one and I missed it. I have a 03 2.2 AWD VTI. Trans has been shuttering when first taking off. I understand these are a problem child now 2 years after buying it to keep miles off my truck for the work commute. My plan was to change the fluid, following the procedures I have found online with the drain tube and using a reader to know temp. What I was wondering was can I used the aftermarket fluids made for CVT vehicles without adding any other modifiers? I have found the valvoline fluid at a local store. Thanks for any help you guys may have.

Unless you want it to die sooner than later. Either it's gonna die, but why rush it.

Thanks for responding. Can I use the valvoline cvt with the gm additive #15231847? Shipping on a syringe is much cheaper than a syringe and 2 gallons of oem.

I doubt his answer will be any different than the first.

Have you consulted a GM dealer parts department?
