You want Dexron VI.

It's the best fluid for your transmission.


It's available everywhere -

oreillys says this does not fit under vehicle     specific

when i go to the websites like auto zone, advanced. CarQuest and type my vehicle in they all come up. with synthetic tranny oil why is this is it safe to use synthetic or should i stay with conventional


I was topping off my 1979 Pontiac's transmission fluid with this. It's Dex/Merc, compatible with Dexron III. I never had an issue with it. I believe that car specs Dexron II. 

thanks, a whole bunch mine cause for dexron 3. i will go to Walmart. and get it.
