Automatic Transmission Fluid Change - Australia

Hi guys

Understand that this is a mainly US forum but I've seen a few Australian users around.

I've been experiencing some hard gear shifting* in my 2005 escape auto at 85000kms lately so I'm thinking of changing the ATF . Manual states ford MIII standard but no luck in finding an exact match. I've called up a dealer and they said they use Dexron. So i'm wondering if what ATF have been used if anyone have had theirs changed lately.

thanks in advance!


*note: I had a post about hard shifting together with high rev some time back but a reset of the ECU fixed that. now its just hard shifting in the lower gears.

Just had my fluid changed at the dealer today as it was very dirty at 45000km. I found out that mine does not have a filter. :confused:
