Re: Best Manual Fluid

I use REDLINE ATF fluid, I have no shifting problems whatsoever when either hot or cold.The manual actually states any ATF fluid that contains the additive Mercon..

Re: Best Manual Fluid

The haynes manual lists an Lubrizol 7906 addative to the dexron 2 fluid, will this be compatable with a synthetic fluid

Re: Best Manual Fluid

i rang castrol after searching through other threads and they reccomended castrol transmax z (which is an synthetic version of dexron 3) with no additional additives

Thanks guys
