Question about 1983 Dodge Charger

Mixing two different types of transmission fluid

I need to add transmission fluid to my car ('33 Plymouth with a dodge transmission). Originally had ATF+3, but when I went to the auto parts store, they only had ATF+4 (a full synthetic fluid). Is it ok to mix the 4 (full synthetic) with the 3 (not synthetic), or should I drain all existing fluid and replace?

Will valvoline dex/merc transmission fluid work for my dodge grand caravan? Does the caravan require dextron III/ mercon


Probably isn't a good idea to run regular ATF. Most chrysler products including your Caravan require ATF +4 or equiv. Typically it is more expensive than regular Atf. Most auto parts stores will stock this.

What kind of transmission fluid? The auto parts store tells me ATF+4, my Chilton's Manual tells me Dexron II. I don't believe either really knows what they're talking about...


You should know that using ANY Dexron/Mercon fluid is not recomended, and has shown to lead to transmission failure.

MOPAR ATF +3 is the factory fluid. But, MOPAR has made a new fluid called ATF +4. Chrysler has posted a TSB saying that ATF +4 should be used now.

I need to add power steering fluid to my 2000 dodge neon. What kind do i need to buy?


Your owner's manual lists the correct fluid. Sometimes it is listed on the P/S fill cap. If you remove all the fluid then use ATF+4 fluid. If you are only topping it off then use ATF+3. This is the same fluid that you use in the Automatic Transmission of your Neon.

What a bad experience you had there.

Look or search for Diamond ATF SP3. Beware Diamond is a brand name and it is the recommended product for your car.
