transmission fluid dip stick

At Wayne & Sons Automotive Repair in Santa Rosa, we know that a key aspect of taking care of your transmission is understanding how it works. Here’s some info on transmission fluid types, in case you’re having trouble finding yours.

Your transmission fluid type can be located either on the transmission fluid dipstick or in your owner’s manual. However, if you drive an older vehicle, it’s likely that the fluid type specified for your vehicle is no longer in production. Your dipstick may say “Use only Dexron II, Dexron III in a vehicle that specifies Dexron VI in any vehicle that specifies an earlier version of Dexron.

Many modern transmission fluids are advertised as almost universal automatic transmission fluids. As long as your specified fluid is listed on the bottle as a brand the universal fluid replaces, you’re probably fine, but you might as well use the exact replacement for your transmission if you can. Most bottles have compatible vehicles listed on the back.

If you have transmission questions or concerns, and for any of your other transmission maintenance and repair needs, our expert mechanics have you covered. We supply quality parts and excellent customer service and can accommodate any make or model. For the best transmission service shop in Santa Rosa, call or stop by Wayne & Sons Automotive Repair today.
