"You *MUST* use type 7176 Transmission Fluid in all Chrysler-built automatic transmissions since the mid-70's. Dexron II and III are much more slippery than type 7176/ATF+3 and will cause shuddering during shifts. The latest version of the Mopar ATF is Mopar ATF+3 type 7176, which is what I would use. It is more heat resistant than the prior ATF+2 formula. Yes, there are aftermarket equivalents for the Mopar ATF+ auto trans fluid. The following fluids are among those known to meet Chrysler's MS7176D specs: Citgo ATF type 7176 Esso (Canada) ATF+2 Type 7176 Kendall Type 7176 ATF Quaker State 7176 ATF Pennzoil 7176ATF Texaco Texamatic Fluid CS 7176M Valvoline ATF for Chrysler Vehicles
