PRODUCT DETAILS

ACDelco Gold ATF Type III (H) is a premium quality automatic transmission fluid for use in a variety of passenger cars and light trucks. It is formulated with select base oils and additives to meet the heavy demands placed on automatic transmissions, including the generation of electronically controlled transmissions. ACDelco Gold ATF Type III (H) is recommended for the following uses: when DEXRON-III(H), DEXRON-III(G), DEXRON-II(E), DEXRON-II, or Type A Fluids are required, in all automatic transmissions built by GM that do not require DEXRON-VI, and can also be used in some hydraulic and compressor systems where excellent low temperature flow ability is required.

MAINTENANCE TIPS

  • Transmission fluid should be replaced when it becomes contaminated.
  • Anything but transmission fluid in the transmission is considered a contaminant.
  • Always use the recommended type of transmission fluid in your vehicle, as referred to in your owner’s manual.
  • Typical fluid change intervals for automatic transmissions vary depending on the severity of the usage. See your owner’s manual for maintenance schedules.
  • In addition to fluid replacement, it is important to regularly check your transmission fluid level.
  • A low transmission fluid level can cause the vehicle to shift improperly or not at all.
  • Stay vigilant – warning signs of low transmission fluid may not appear until serious damage has already occurred.
