transmission fluid is a fancy name for 10W hydraulic fluid
with pink dye, same for power-steering fluid.
A autoshift transmission is basically a hydraulic pump and
hydraulic motor combined w/a gear case,
some "tranny fluids" are better than others but only
because of the addition of special additives.
You can waste your money on Redline or B&M fluids
but for the most part just get the off the fluid that was
factory recommended such as Dexron II, III or IV with
or w/o Mercon (whatever the hell that is).
In my opinion, the best ATF available is AMSOIL synthetic ATF. Yes, there
can be substantial differences in the performance of various brands of ATF,
just as there are substantial differences in the performance of various brands
of cars. :-)
All the Best,
