Thanks for the interesting thread. Pls which ATF would you recommend for Toyota sienna 2002 model? Mine is under 140000 miles, the transmission has been smooth thus far. I ve covered approximately 15000 miles.. I guess it makes sense if I change the ATF now. Pls I patiently await your response.. Dnt want any mech doing trial n error wit my baby. If you can recommend any mech in Makurdi.. I will really appreciate it.

Massaro, why not create a thread? This is not Honda advert thread. Car manufacturer and SAE recommends most of the DEXTRON, mecon etc ATF oil as alternative to manufacturers recommended oil.
Re: What Kind Of Transmission Fluid (ATF) Should I Use? by vitality22(m): 3:29pm On Nov 08, 2012

Re: What Kind Of Transmission Fluid (ATF) Should I Use? by justauto(m): 9:36am On Nov 09, 2012
Dexron is the trade name for a group of technical specifications of automatic transmission fluid created by General Motors (GM). The name is a registered trademark of GM, which licenses the name and specifications to external companies which manufacture the fluid and sell it under their own brands. GM has upgraded the Dexron specifications over the years; newer fluids are generally but not always backward compatible with previous Dexron fluids. The current fluid is Dexron-VI, introduced in 2005. Originally the Dexron name was associated exclusively with automatic transmission fluids, but more recently[when?] GM has released Dexron-branded gear oils. The brand name is commonly mispronounced as "Dex-tron". Yon can buy from Mobil but make sure dextrin 111 is written on bottle or come to 270 ikorodu road, Obanikoro Lagos
