    Default CVT oil change adding Hypoid fluid

    2007 Caliber AWD.
    I used the pre-requisite oil at the 106K mileage. Shifts fine but almost feels like it downshifts when coasting to a stop. Even though there is/was the friction modifier in the fluid, would adding some Mopar Hypoid fluid help at all, or hurt?
