I think you mean ATF, (Automatic Transmission Fluid) Dexron is not a universal fluid. Chrysler four-speed automatics only use ATF+3 (ATF+4 for newer vehicles), regardless of what the dipstick or owner's manual says. Chrysler ATF+3 fluid is no longer the only fluid to use in a late model transmission. Chrysler TSB# 21-006-01 notes that all current vehicles only use ATF+4 type 9602, part 05013457AA (for quart bottles). The advantages of ATF+4 over ATF+3 include: Better anti-wear properties, Improved rust/corrosion prevention, Controls oxidation -Eliminates deposits, Controls friction, Anti-foaming, Superior low temperature operation: From what I have read ATF+3 is not synthetic but ATF+4 is synthetic. Use what your owners manual states or ask you local chrysler dealer, but do not under any circumstance use Dexron or a universal fluid.
