The only reason you would use ATF+ instead of the Dexron/Mercon is if you have an automatic and the 2.5 liter four cylinder. The 3 speed auto that came with the 4-cylinder is a Chrysler tranny that uses the ATF stuff.

The aw4 origionally called for DexronII, If you look at the trans drain plug, you will see "dII" stamped into it.
DexronII is no longer around, so it is recommended that you use DexronIII/Mercon. DO NOT USE AFT+4! Your transmission will screw up and youll have to drain ALL the fluid/buy a new trans.
I run my car to get it to operating temp., then check the tranny dipstick to ensure the tranny fluid is at it's proper "hot" level on the stick (while it's running and in "neutral").
Check your User Manual The AW-4 I belive you leave in Park to check the fluid, the 4.0L and the 4 cyl. tranny are a little different in the way you check the fluid (what gear it is at least...)

Possibly because all licenses to manufacture Dexron III have expired and the oil companies have had to rename the equivalent product due to trademark issues. In some cases, the new product is called "ATF." (Note that ATF and ATF+4 are not the same product.)
