Tranny fluid whoppsie

Rebuilt the TF999 4 years ago and filled it with Dex 3. Not sure why, might have been the tranny shop guys advice, might have been not reading the Chiltons manual. So I'd guess 9-10 K later I need to put a new pan gasket on. I do t want to pull the whole thing and dump the torque converter. Would you refill with Dex 3? Would you refill with the Chrysler stuff and have a combo fluid deal? Am I worried about nothing?

Dexron II was the original fluid. Dexron-III/Mercon is compatible. ATF and ATF+ in most formulas is not.

By the way, Chilton's and Haynes are full of errors and omissions. You should find PacificCoastManuals.com and spend $7.95 on a genuine Jeep Factory Service Manual.

Parts store monkey kind of freaked me out the other day. Everything I read says Dex 3 can be run in exchange for Dex 2. That's what my Chiltons says I need is Dex 2. Thanks for the thumbs up!
