This bulletin is being updated with the 2007 model year. Please discard Corporate Bulletin Number 04-07-30-037A (Section 07 -- Transmission/Transaxle).
General Motors Powertrain has recently upgraded to DEXRONŽ-VI ATF with the start of 2006 vehicle production.
Only 2005 and prior models that currently use DEXRONŽ-III may use DEXRONŽ-VI as a replacement.
All 2006 and future models that use DEXRONŽ-VI are to be serviced with DEXRONŽ-VI fluid only.
DEXRONŽ-VI is an improvement over DEXRONŽ-III in the following area:
Extended Factory Fill For Life
160,000 km (100,000 mi) For Cars and Light Duty Trucks*
80,000 km (50,000 mi) (Severe Use) For Cars and Light Duty Trucks*
Clutch Friction Stability
Clutch Durability Due To Fluid
Oil Film Thickness
* These ATF change intervals remain the same as DEXRONŽ-III for the time being.
2006-2007 Transmission Fill and Cooler Flushing
Some new applications of the 6L80 six speed transmission will require the use of the J 45096 - Flushing and Flow Tester to accomplish transmission fluid fill. It is highly recommended that the clean oil reservoir of the machine be purged of DEXRONŽ-III and filled with DEXRONŽ-VI.
