check the fluid recommendations but a synch fluid can do good, its an easy job to change it (drain/fill basically using a little pump to pump fluid back into the trans until the given level is reached).

Just research what is recommended and wont mess up the specific trans you have.

synthetic fluid usually makes the car shift smoother~ thats what I was talking about. I used Mobile 1's version but there are many. Some could harm it and some are great, Amsoil is a great product and so is Royal Purple.
