    I was wondering what are the equivalent trans fluids for Mopar ATF plus 3 trans fluid. None of my local parts stores sell Mopar products

    If I'm not mistaken, any ATF+3 will work. ATF+3 is a type of trans fluid not a brand specific. ATF+4 should also work as it is "backward compatible" as they say in the tech world.

    Don't deal with auto trans stuff much so anyone feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

    Some people may say use DexMerc as a substitute, but do NOT do this unless you know for a FACT that your transmission is slipping, or if it is a dead emergency. If the trans is in good shape and you use the DexMerc, make sure to change the trans fluid ASAP, and only use it to top off of a good trans in a emergency. If the trans is slipping bad, a complete fill of DexMerc will save the transmission. I got an extra 20,000 miles out of my transmission that way...

    But use ATF4 on a good transmission, any brand will work, I prefer NAPA's Performance ATF line.
