I guess the op means well to clearify issues on oil types.
Having changed three gear boxes in six mth due to oil I might share my thoughts .
All auto maker have their oils to international system of naming say dextron . This is listed one to four. With the one series being for older cars and four for newer ones
All am saying use a higher a higher spec. Where I am only texaco has dex three
Word of caution don't use abro for gear box. My gear box is 140k and I had to get 3 of that kind of learnt my lesson. That's about 4yrs ago.
Thus your best bet is to google out the one for your car.use the one next above your recommended speck.
For the cars with dextron 3
I will recommend texaco it's way expensive butt it will save you. I used seahorse and got my box fried in just 3 weeks.I use a nativa sports

I drive a 2007 Camry v6. I recently changed the shaft and since then, the transmission has been having difficulty engaging reverse. Sometimes, it will engage and disengage immediately, while at other tines, it will work well. What could be responsible? Pls advise/assist. Thanks.

Why is my gear stick usually hard to shift from park to reverse, especially in the mornings, but at times moves freely?
Is it normal?

2004 Ford Escape uses mercon ATF if I am not mistaken so any Dexron 111 ATF brand of repute should be fine except you specifically want to order for it from abroad. Sienna or IDAchaba could assist you with that.

Ford uses mercon atf and you can get ford motorcraft mercon atf at ford dealership along mobolaji bank Anthony way in Lagos or U could also use coastal mercon atf available at autoselect outlet.

|Re: Automatic Gearbox Problems by cardoctor(m): 8:20am On Nov 08, 2013|
Gearbox repairs depends on how experienced the repairer is. Chances are that something may end up going wrong if its not meticulously and properly repaired. This may eventually become an uneconomical resolve in addition to the stress of breaking down on the road or other malfunctions that may result.
Best thing to do is change the gearbox completely. Although this may be a more expensive option, its still pays in the long run because you will have a reasonable peace of mind knowing that the new (Tokunbo) gearbox is still original and hasn't been tampered with. Use manufacturer recommended ATF. (In the example of the Honda Accord 2003, use the Honda ATF-Z1)

vitality22: Hello car doc, pls what atf is best for nissan xterra 2001 model?
Nissan Matic-D is the best.
|Re: Automatic Gearbox Problems by cardoctor(m): 8:39am On Nov 08, 2013|
You may be right but the ATF Z1 is still very much available. I bought a carton of 12 last Saturday to do a tranny flush on a Honda Pilot.
Yeah, ATF DW1 is ok for the Honda Accord 2005.

|Re: Automatic Gearbox Problems by awolols(m): 11:27pm On Nov 14, 2013|
Hey doc. I was scared to death tonight cos I thought my 08 accord would not getme home. Drove down a slope as usual rpm went up but this time VSA and ABS lights came on. Thereafter gears selects only 1. If it manages to go to 2 its with a vigorous jerk. The D light is also blinking. What do you think is the problem?
|Re: Automatic Gearbox Problems by ReLaTE(m): 4:57pm On Nov 15, 2013|
Does a faulty brainbox affects gearbox coz my gear is nt selecting well and I was adviced to change my Ecu.
