Hello kapperkins: My name is Roger and I will help you. What is recommended fluid for your transmission is Dexron Synchro-mesh transmission fluid (GM. part # 12345349). with friction modifier. have never been able to to find the equivalent at any parts store. I would not put just Dexron in the transmission as it may not properly be able to lubricate the bearings. Could cause major transmission failure. The oil is not cheap but compared to the repairs due to lack of lubrication the price is cheap. Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer you received. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

Oil would be 5W30 according to GM but it would have enough mileage by now so that you could go heavier if you wanted, 10W30 or 10W40 if it burns some. The transmission would use Dexron II or whatever replaces it. Read the label on the back to make sure that what you are buying can be used as a substitute for Dexron II. Hope this helps.
