Just about to change the tranny oil in my 02. The book calls for Dex 3 as an 02 is now considered "older"

I know lots of guys have upgraded from dex 3 to dex 6. Dex 6 meets and exceeds 3 by a long shot as it is partly synthetic. From what I have been told it is also perfectly fine to use in a tranny that originally had Dex 3. It's not like we are going from Dex to Type "F"

What I am wondering, is there any harm in the fluid mixing? I am only planning on dropping the pan, installing a new filter and drain plug for future ease. So there will still be Dex 3 floating around in the converter when I add the fresh stuff.

Maybe I should just stick with Dex 3 end of story???

Dexron VI is 100% compatible with Dexron III.

No issues whatsoever.

If you have an '02 then it should call for Dexron IV, not III. But anyway, yes you can mix them. It will be fine.
