Yes, you'll want to use ATF+IV, it's the replacement to Chrysler's ATF+III that was used for many years. Suggest starting off with 4 quarts of ATF after you drop the pan and replace fluid and filter, then run engine to operating temp, shift slowly into each gear then back to park, then check fluid and top off. You may need to top off after running it a few miles, also. Changing ATF isn't an exact science. Depending on the temp when you change it, more or less might come out.

I have two dodge rams and i can tell you USE ONLY ATF+4!!!! If you do not you will have issues. i work on cars for a living and my cousin who is a certified tech for chrysler reccommends ATF+4. and once you add it start it up run it through all the gears (PRND2L) and check the fluid with the truck in neutral. drive it around the block and check it again (in neutral) while running (the level rises when the fluid is hot). Also, make sure you change the filter. good luck!

I just change the transmission fluid and filter in my 95Dodge ram 1500 truck. Now it is pushing the 5.50 quartz of fluid out when not running. I read did it again change pan gasket and filter. Just put 4 quartz in it pulled it down in all its gear's and drove it to. Still say not in ok mark. What do I need to do.
