Dextron with mercron or mercron v . It it's not totally universal. Atf+3 or atf+4 will not be compatible. They cause frothing of fluid detergents. This is no bueno.

Motor oil in transmission


Are you sure it's not just a dirty and burn transmission fluid?? But if it is engine oil you may have a bad radiator since the transmission cooler and engine oil cooler is integrated with the radiator.
Good luck and keep me posted.

The tranny fluid is full but brown and smells like gas...any idea


Transmission is worn and previous owner has added transmission fluid additives like Lucas transmission oil to try to make it last longer. The fluid is burn and needs to be changed, best thing to do is to have the transmission fluid and filter changed and add some additives to the fluid and try not to drive it to hard.
It shift's hard when your driving at normal speeds because the fluid is thicker then it should and the transmission line pressure is higher due to the thicker fluid. At WOT the transmission slips so it seams smoother and that's why the fluid is burnt.
Good luck and hope this helps. Do not do a trany flush, the transmission is already worn out, but the dirty fluid will make it worst too.
