T case fluid

been readin around and just a real quick question....It takes Mercon ATF, will Dex/merc or Dex/merc III work? or do i have to go and actually get just mercon fluid? isnt Dexron just GMs name and Mercon fords? don't bother recommending Royal purple or any other synthetic fluid. i never bother with expensive stuff.

Its just ATF fluid. Your right, there is no difference.

Personally I used Royal Purple in mine. A little more expensive, but I have given it a rough going now and then lol
