WickedGoat Glad to have posted this... At $9 a quart normal price, it is a great deal. Also, don't use anything but straight Dexron 6... no mixtures like Dex/Merc. Just use straight Dex 6 fluid, no matter which brand you go with. This is for the 6 speed automatic LFX cars...

Asked once at local store if he could order castrol transmax atf4 for our durango for me. Guy working there said he would have some in Thursday afternoon, so I dropped back in and guess what, still was just one quart on the shelf.

Was just able to order online ship to home and got free shipping with an order over $35. The 2 for $10 deal applied and they had both dex6 and atf4 in stock. Had tried prior to order oil and trans fluid online from autozone and they would not ship it, nice to see that has changed. 18 qts was $98 with tax.
Sounds like a good plan

It drained around 4.5 quarts and was barely touching the stick before. I put that much back in and will check it again in a couple days after driving more.

kbz1960 Darn, don't think ours is having this sale. Of course today was the first warmer day for me to change filters so I also checked the tyranny fluid and it barely touches the stick so figured I do a drain and fill also. Time for an oil change too.

Now to find the DYI so I can find how much I need.

Edit:

Does it matter if it's full synthetic or a blend.

This what I'm looking at and it is on sale.

sheila WickedGoat, thanks for the heads-up! Just got home with 24qts. Had to go to 2 stores. Good deal considering it's $9/qt. normally. With 3 Impalas in the driveway, it'll get used for atf and ps changes.

12 lt Thanks for the heads up. That is a good deal, unfortunately our az store whenever I have gone in never has more than one quart of castrol branded dex 6 or atf4 in the store. Have been in the place after trans fluid many times and given up on even trying them when I need trans fluid.

AutoZone sale on Dex 6 trans fluid

Just an FYI... AutoZone is running a nice sale on Castrol Dexron VI synthetic blend trans fluid. It is 2 quarts for $10 and you must buy 2. 6 quarts for $30 plus tax. Just picked up some for a drain and fill along with 6 quarts of STP synthetic oil, long life filter and air filter. If I remember right, the trans fluid sale is going on until April 1st.
