asked by on

my car is in limp mode.my code is p0700.do i HAVE to use atf 4 for my transmittion fluid?i also had the out sensor put in

My car has 104978 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

If you do not use the recommended fluid for Chrysler or any transmissions in general, it can cause the transmission to have shifting and slipping concerns. Even damage can be caused from incorrect fluids being used.

This is why I do not recommend having a transmission flushed since the machines are used for all vehicles. Sometimes fluids from previous flushes are still in the machine and will get into your transmission when work is done.
