According to the service manual that is downloadable and printable from,

...the first generation Sportage transmission takes Dexron II E or MIII transmission fluid. This is true for the automatic transmission only. It holds 7 quarts when bone dry.

I've also read that Dextron III is acceptable.

Please double check the link for your specific application.

Almost anyone does. Automatic transmission is only used by people who cannot drive a manual. Recent luxury cars and buses also use automatic transmission. Remember when you take your driver's exam with an automatic car, you will not be allowed to drive a manual. Given manual is the standard that is kind of a problem...

You are going to have to provide a lot more information before anyone can help you. What kind of car or truck is it? does it have a 4,6 or 8 cylinder motor? Is it automatic or manual transmission?
