I can't get dextron 6 what can I use
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi There, Dextron VI is what replaced Dextron II and III. I would strongly suggest trying to locate or have Dextron VI shipped to you if it is not available locally as this is the correct and recommended transmission fluid for your specific transmission. Should you need further help with this, please schedule an appointment to have a professional from YourMechanic come to your location to perform a transmission fluid service using the correct fluid.
