    It's used in many more than just the 500 and 518's.....

    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 +3 (and Dexron for that matter) include:
    • Better anti-wear and anti-corrosion properties — and maintains its friction properties over time
    • Controls oxidation - eliminates deposits
    • Anti-foaming
    • Superior low temperature operation

    You can use ATF+4 with all older Chrysler transmissions (except some Jeeps, as noted earlier, and very early automatics — before the TorqueFlite).
    Rich Hutchinson wrote: [In 1989-91] both the manual and the dipstick said Dexron was okay, which is wrong. For non lockup 3 spds, either can be used. For lockup 3 spds up to some date in 1999 either could be used but ATF+3 was prefered. After that date ATF+4 is to be used in all automatics.
    The best bet for transmissions made before 1998 is to just use ATF+4. Even if it's not needed, it's better than Dexron.

            We but some Exxon crap that is multi blended, We have three separate 250gal tanks, One for old cars, one for newer-ish cars and one synthetic. The other specialty fluids we buy in gallon or quart jugs.. some of that stuff is $50.00+ a quart.

                Yota, M.B. Nissan, some ZF units. Some of the new ZF'z and MB's come with the filter integrated into the transmission pan...
                We have done some $500.00+ fluid and filter changes and we were cheaper than the dealer..
