^ no. Good for power steering only.

Auto tranny needs OEM or OEM equivalent fluid and it's not Dex III.

If you have a look over in the general and DIY sections, there is info on the different gear boxes and compatible fluids. You can track down your gear box type and work out what's best for you.

Just confirming this would be the right fluid to use for my power steering (cap says "ATF fluid only"):



How much would I need to do a flush? Would this 1litre bottle cut it?

Yep, that's it. I bought a 4 litre bottle and have just under 3 litres left after two complete drain/refills.

Thank you, sir. I think I will also go for the 4 litre bottle, and keep the rest for future flushes...

I'm assuming you are going to use the correct fluid yah?

Try Imparts, or just buy from overseas.
