They ALSO make? I'd be very scared of anything that they make because GM no longer authorizes DEX2 to be used any more. Right now, your DEX 2 could be used motorcycle oil.

I would find a shop and have the entire trans flushed and filled with DEX6.

Did anyone notice the OP is from Venezuela?

GM no longer license DEX II, or DEX III. Either DEX II or DEX III can contain anything a seller wants to put in a bottle. My guess is DEX II is still around as some areas in South America keep older cars running for much longer than the USA.

Best thing you can do is go DEX VI, but I imagine it may be brutally more expensive than DEX II or DEX III in Venezuela. Heck, toilet paper can be really hard to buy in Venezuela.

Below is a picture of my Venezuela Airborne Jump Wings. Kind of rare now that we no longer do joint ops with the Venezuelan military.

When it comes to DEX VI, I think the cheapest is the best. It is a licensed formula from GM- so the specifications are supposed to be the same no matter the brand. I have read that in the USA, different plants make DEX VI by region. In California Wal-mart may get DEX VI from Mobil, in New York Wal-mart may get DEX VI from BP. All come in the same container, but out of a different plant by a different producer. Just like Coca-cola, it is produced in the USA by many different independent bottlers, but all putting the same formula in the bottle.


I jumped with the Venezuelan military I am guessing around 2000. They are good jumpmasters. Your Dad was a Venezuelan paratrooper? Did your Dad know the late Huge Chavez?
