Question

Not sure whats in the Trans. now and I need to change the filter.

I'v did a search and found that there are two sides to what to put in it, dexron III and ATF+3.

The ATF+3 is for Chrysler Transmissons, but I don't know if thats what it has in it.

So should I change the filter and put in ATF+3 or Dexron III?

Not sure if i should mix the two?

Thanks

bob

My owners manual say to use Dextron II, which I couldn't find of course, so I use Dextron III. Works pretty good for me.
But it would really depend on what the PO put in.

and unless you drain the torque converter, you will never get all the old fluid out anyway. i used amzoil synthetic, which will mix with all atf types. and i wanted to switch to synthetic anyway.

Use Dexron III. It's just a new/later/improved version of Dexron II which isn't made anymore. ATF3 is only for the later (94ish and up) Chrysler trannies(says so on the bottle).

Thumbs up

You can also flush your transmission by disconnecting the return line from your transmission cooler and adding fluid on an itermittent basis until clean. Be sure to shift the transmission in all gears a few times while doing this.
