Re: 2002 chevy s10 4x4 quad cab 4.3 v6 transmission fluid questions.
My question is what is the best dex3 transmission fluid on the market?Money is no object to me when it comes to the transmission. Any suggestions?
Use Dex3 or Dex4. You don't need to spend money on special fluids and things. It isn't going to do anything different then the $1.99 bottle of ATF. The main failure of the 4L60E is a mechanical failure (reaction sunshell or valvebody related). Fluids don't cause mechanical failures.
P.S.- I have heard of other people putting in "Type F" fluids in their GM transmissions, but I would never do it because it is not recommended by GM.
