    What brand ATF ?

    What's everyone using for ATF? Debating putting synthetic and/or a top shelf brand in.

                If you use anything but Dexron/Mercon 3 in an AOD, you WILL kill the transmission. I use Supertech for my tranny and my oil. SuperTech is decent.

                      Ehh, not worth the cost to me. Maybe in engine oil since you can go longer between changes. But in a tranny you go about 50K miles between services anyways.

                        You can safely run mercon V in your car too.

                        but it's a waste, and won't benefit rly...

                          $2.50/qt. for Dexron/Mercon III vs. $4.50/qt. for Mercon V

                            I ran merc 5 in my 87. Worked well. I didn't pay for it though.

                              When I installed my shift kit I poured in 12qts of Valvoline MaxLive Mercon III, synthetic of some kind (Mobil 1, Royal Purple) would be the ideal situation but then again it's way too expensive.
