I used redline d4 on auto trannies (I think it was around 7 quartz), be sure to change the filter when you drop the pan. Search, there is a good step by step diy on here

MTF won't work on auto tranny. I think spec's different..
Redline D4, Castrol multi-import vehicles ATF, Febi ATF etc...There are numbers of good ATFs meet factory spec.

Yes sir, you might even be able to find it at the local auto store to save on shipping (i got mine at carquest)

First of all you need to figure out which transmission you have - ZF or GM. I have ZF and I use Valvoline MaxLife and it works great for me. Cheap enough too.
