    Hi, I am thinking to use Redline 30505 D4 ATF for my tranny. Anyone has experience about this fluid. Which ATF fluid do you recommend?

    I looked up manual and it says donax tx ...so either of Mobil 1 sync ATF or the redline you specified should be good

    As mentioned mentioned above if at a shop ..let them give you some input

    Thanks guys. I’m doing it myself. So I have to count on my forum buddies like you on advices. Donax TX is very hard to find in US. I read about Mobile 1 seemed may be incompatible. I was about to use Castrol Transmax or AC Delco Dex VI ( since the tranny is a 4T80E variant), both viscosity index are quite low comparing with TX, so I ended up bought Redline D4. Will see how it goes.

    Curious where does it mention it is incompatible ..

    The transmission probably is rating Dex III and using vi is not advisable

    Dex ii or iv is ok .. and mobile 1 is backward compatible..

    Please let me know where it is stated ..would love to research

    Can't go wrong with the redline though

    That should have said dex III not dex II

    Affirmative, Dexron VI is back compatible with Dexron III. VI is what I use in my power steering.

    Thanks, we are fine. The tornados were 40 miles south of us here where we live in Clarksville. No tornados at all in Albuquerque, so every place has problems. Albuquerque's was crime.
