Discussion:
A new transmission fluid (ATF+4 - Type 9602) has been developed and is being used as factory fill for all vehicles with Chrysler automatic transmissions.It is recommended that all vehicles with Chrysler automatic transmissions EXCEPT FOR THOSE LISTED ABOVE be serviced with ATF+4.

NOTE: ATF+4 must always be used in vehicles that were originally filled with ATF+4.

NOTE: Service intervals do not change. The service interval currently in effect for a given vehicle should continue to be followed.

NOTE: ATF+4 is compatible with ATF+3 and ATF+2. ATF+4 can be used to top off vehicles that currently have ATF+2 or ATF+3. Do not use ATF+2 or ATF+3 to top off vehicles that have ATF+4 fluid.

BENEFITS

FLUID COLOR

Mopar ATF+4T is a World Class Fluid having exceptional durability. However, the red dye used in ATF+4T is not permanent; as the fluid ages it may become darker or appear brown in color. ATF+4T also has a unique odor that may change with age. With ATF+4T fluid, color and odor are no longer indicators of fluid condition and do not support a fluid change.

Parts Required:
