ATF+4 only.

While it's out, do yourself a favor and do the rear main seal on the engine. It's just not that much $$$ but it's a PITA with the tranny in (easy as hell with it out).

Actually, as far as I know there's no gaskets between the different drivetrain parts. Each unit has an input and output seal, but they aren't gaskets...
