Dexron 2, 3, or 6 (6 replaces all previous versions and is synthetic AFAIK)

Or Hondas DW-1. Also synthetic, and replaces all previous versions of ATF for Hondas.

All can work ok.

Oh, I need to backpedal here.



Direct quote from another professional forum:

"Dexron VI was specifically developed to be backwards
compatible with previous GM transmissions. It was NOT
developed or tested to replace dexron III or any previous
dexron fluids in any or all of the many other applications
where dexron III is used."


Sorry about that.
Use at your own risk.
