you have many choices ranging from synthetic or non-synthetic. Everyone seems to have a brand that they've had good luck with and they stick with it. Seeing as how you asked though I will at least throw in 2 different brands that I've used and had excellent luck with, they are Mobil 1 ATF and Amsoil ATF. Both are synthetic and both provide nice smooth shifts.

If you don't want to pay the price of synthetics than any good Dexron II/III is what is recommended. I've attached a data sheet on ATF's that I did about 6 months ago for your reference. It may help you in deciding what's right for you!!

Enjoy and good luck,
