Re: [DMCForum] Transmission Fluid



There are a number of standard transmissions that use
ATF from the factory.  It is not so strange that a
previous mechanic would put ATF in, not knowing what
should be in there.

My Taurus SHO (which has a Mazda standard gear box)
uses ATF.  I have since replaced it with Redline MTL,
which is also red in color. I am not sure what color
the Redline MT-90 is.
