Just changed fluid and filter this weekend - Put in close to 6 quarts of Valvoline Dexron 6.

Tranny didn't implode, explode, or go up in smoke. To the best of my knowledge, shifts just as it did before.

Personally, I didn't notice any viscosity differences between original (used) fluid (Texaco spec'd), and Dex6.

Original fluid came out looking like dirty motor oil. Perhaps not quite as black.
