    transmission fluid

    hey everyone quick question..... went to the dealership to get some dextron 3 tranny fluid like it says in the manual and they said they no longer carry it. they recommended using dextron 6 since it has advanced formulas and they use it on all fluid changes now. would this be ok or should i try to find a place that has dextron 3?

    Dexron 6 should be fine to use in your transmission.

    It supercedes Dexron III, meaning its backwards compatible in the automatic transmissions.
