    It depends if it has been rebuilt or not as specs change . Most modern boxes use Dextron 2 (or 3) but older BW boxes use TQF or modern equivalent ( AQF I think ).

    i probably worded what i meant badly lol

    you said TQF and AQF but i mean is there any extra numbers on the end of the AQF like axle oil on land rover boxes are EP "90" for example, with auto boxes is it just AQF?

    thanks and sorry for being a pain lol

    Halfords Automatic Transmission Fluid, red 5ltr container, about £25 should do it.

    Use a fluid that meets Ford specification M2C-33G. Don't use any type of Dexron fluid.

    i picked up a big red 5 litre can like you guys said above from halfrauds tonight, so hopefully that will be ok was £23.99 i think, it said on the back it meets lots of GM and ford specs so might be ok, il double check if that ford spec that dodgeman has put on, is on the back of the can. think it says it also meets dextron 3 specs, not sure if this means it is dextron, dont think it does though

    the can i have got says on the front its AQ3 i think

    what you all think

    thanks

    It can't be Dexron spec if it meets the specification I listed. Check on the container as you say and if it says it's Dexron anywhere i suggest you don't use it.
