check owner's manual, call your dealer and ask what type of fluid and capacity.. there are different types and you should ALWAYS stick with what is recommended by manufacturer..if wrong fluid is placed in transmission, you might run into transmission problems..

I don't have an owner manual, and cannot get in contact with previous owner. So does anyone actually know what fluid I should use. I tryed looking it up but no luck
