Just wondering what the current recommendation is for auto tranny fluid...
What works well in these old cars?

Thanks.

I've used genuine Nissan Type "D" ATF with good results and have also used Valvoline Maxlife ATF and Castrol Multi-import ATF, which are both synthetic; good results here also. I would stay away from using Dexron III, which has a thicker viscosity; it's been reported to cause valve sticking in the valve body assy.

Just ordered some Valvoline Maxlife ATF. Going to drain and fill a couple times. Looking forward to trying it out. Currently the car has Red Line D4 ATF in it. Thank you for the recommendations!

I agree with rogoman. Personally, I use Valvoline Maxlife Full-synthetic ATF in all the Nissans I own. Walmart usually has it in a gallon jug for around $18.
