Transmission Fluid

I have a 1998 Dodge Mininvan. The transmission fluid is dry. The manual say to use ATF+3 and the auto parts store says you can use ATF4 in it’s place. Is that correct or do I need to use ATF+3?

your manual is the bible.

what is the guy at the auto parts store going to say if it’s the wrong stuff??? probably just say. oops.

Thanks cappy208. Do I need to go to a Chrysler Dealer for this ATF+3 fluid?

ATF+4 IS Chrysler fluid and is a replacement for ATF+3. ATF +3 is not sold anymore so what the auto parts guy told you is right.
