    Which Tranny Fluid to use?

    I've read on this forum that dealer SP-III breaks down very fast under severe service. I was looking for the link of that post but the search function is useless (at least for me). So anything synthetic or even maxlife or castrol IMV is better than the OEM SP-III.

    Castrol import multi vehicle performs great in SP-II and SP-III aplications. And its cheap at walmart.
