  • What type of trans fluid to use

    258 CJ7 automatic transmission 1983

    What type of transmission fluid should be used to refill the trans?

    I had a 79 j10 with the 400 auto tranny in it and I just ran Dextron III in it and never had any problems ... but I am unsure what it "calls" for ... I say if its red ... its good enough!

      Don't you just love it when someone is right, but only by pure dum luck

      The correct fluid is in fact dextron III, (1983 should be a Chrysler trany, and they used dex III untill about 1987-8 ) But not all red fluids will work in those.
