What is the difference between ATF and ATF 4 transmission fluid?
ATF +4 is a synthetic fluid for finely-tuned transmissions, so if you use a non-synthetic ATF instead of ATF +4 in a car or truck that calls for it, you could damage the transmission. You may use ATF +4 in most applications that call for older Dexron and Mercon fluids.
Can you mix ATF 4 and Dexron?
Use ATF+4 only. Don’t use anything with Dexron/Mercon fluids. These fluids will cause TCC slippage/chatter problems plus wear out your transmission sooner than you would like for. The slipping could also be due to the bands needing adjustment.
What is compatible with ATF 4?

Graphs in the paper show that the friction coefficient of fresh ATF+3 and ATF+4 is essentially identical, but as the fluid ages ATF+4 retains the “as new” coefficient while ATF+3 degrades.
Is Synthetic ATF better?
Because of superior engineering, the synthetic fluid is better at lubricating your transmission and is able to sustain its viscosity in a broad temperature range. Consequently, in using a synthetic fluid you can expect your vehicle to shift more smoothly. This will likely be true even with variations in temperatures.

Is Dex Merc the same as dexron 3?
GM no longer licenses Dexron III. Dex/Merc would be fine. Dexron VI is listed by GM as backward compatible, but is thinner than original Dexron III. I’d use the Dex/Merc myself.
