70K transmission drain and fill
So I bought my 2008 (Automatic trans) Mazda 6 used with 40K miles on it and transmission fluid was pink. I am currently at 70K and transmission fluid is a little brown but cant really see any pink.
I'm going to be doing a transmission drain and fill twice. I bought the the oil/filter gasket kit from an auto parts store.
My question is, what type Transmission Fluid do you fellow mazda folks use?
When I searched a couple auto parts stores on line to compare, they all referred to ATF +4 (Valvoline or similar) however, when I went in person their systems and associate suggested using Mag 1 or Valvoline "Import Multi-Vehicle" Full synthetic. I just want to ensure I will be putting the best type of fluids in my car that wont cause any damage.
Please advise and thanks in advance!
