dexron II E Sign In

The auto tranny dip stick says use dexron II E only , a search got me some vague answers and says they don't make it anymore so what can I use instead ? 94 gmc 1500 pick up 5.0 224,000 miles

I wont say use another and make a mistake. Just looked at a 2500HD 480LE (that one or close or have that backwards) trans in '97 stick says Dextron III only. Can't find that either but told the next # superseded it then yet more new #s still called Dextron are incompatible. Look for # of bolts on oil pan you will be asked.
If there's a real problem and think there could be don't! Wait for another. I'm still looking myself for old oils and not finding them or looking in the wrong places? Yup, hydraulics and gear cases for a 1948 calls for Motor Oil 10W, non detergent using 30 is all I can find! Quandary needs a good answer,

Use Dexron 3 ATF.



Quote
General Motors has phased in a new automatic transmission fluid, DEXRON(R)-III, that does not need replacing under normal service. DEXRON(R)-III is designed to help the transmission deliver the best possible performance under all conditions. Refer to Figure 1.

The improvements in DEXRON(R)-III include better friction stability, more high temperature oxidation stability and better material compatibility. DEXRON(R)-III has the same low temperature fluidity as DEXRON(R)-IIE, for better transmission performance in cold weather.

DEXRON(R)-IIE and DEXRON(R)-III are fully compatible.

DEXRON(R)-III is fully compatible with any General Motors passenger vehicle or light truck with automatic transmission and built since 1949.

O.K. thanks , they should print something definitive like that on the container ., instead of "most G.M. " before 2005

Re: dexron II E Sign In

I hear you. Containers used to state "meets or exceeds" specs for earlier types now not finding that on containers nor words like "compatible with" also.
Not very comforting to say "most GM" vehicles to me. Not sure but would identify the exact trans - two were popular or possible unknown if another was in some either or a total change over so many years just isn't helpful to be sure. Sorry - that's a non answer for you,
