Indeed, the 87-91 Bonneville-era RWD Toyota trannies I know about call for Dexron II. Contrary to what jr'* talking about, Dexron III may (unconfirmed) be linked to gearbox failure, speculation says that the Dexron III may actually be too grippy
, burning out the clutches prematurely. While Dexron II (or rebadged equivalent) was used from the factory, Toyota since came out with a fluid known as Toyota Type T-IV, Dexron IV? Apparently it'* good stuff for the Aisin A340E transmissions.
Could this stuff be Dexron IV (I think it exists, does it not?) put out by Toyota?
just adding to the discussion, this should make it interesting
