i would like to know which type of tranny fluid to use. also where do you add the fluid to the truck. i have the transmission dipstick located
Most dodges have to take mopar tanny fluid wich many places car not just dealers you can fill the transmission throught the dip stick tube or the plug on the tranny your choice
refer the manual
you can use any brand transmission fluid as long as its ATF+2 or 3 ATF+4 doesnt blend up with the others because its slightly thicker and has some different wear ingredients in it, and you add the fluid right down the dip stick tube i recommend using a funnell that bends to keep from leaking all over the place
Use the mopar fluid these Chrysler transmissions are picky as can be and you’ll get in trouble (transmission problems) if you don’t use it. I’m at a auto diesel college and I’m taking automatic transmissions right now also I’ve worked in a automotive shop for close to two years and you would be much better off in the long run to use mopar fluid. https://jet.com/product/Mopar-Automatic- Transmission-Fluid-1- Gallon/ad09874244ea4c64917ac762fad2edc2 There’s a link to some it’s expensive but it’s well worth it for all of the additives it has in it. This is what I run in my 2003 dodge dakota and I’ve yet to have a transmission problem yet, also I recommend changing the filter when you do this. You’ll need a gasket and filter set oreillys or autozone should have some on deck.
