Jim,
Nothing wrong with Dexron in any brand you can get. I use the Wal-Mart Supertech often.
I also use tractor trans/hydraulic fluid in some cases

I've had no problems with the cheap Dexron myself. I started using the Walmart stuff when I started working there in 1994, and since I've been working at Fred's for a few years, I now use theirs. I believe Fred's is made by Warren Oil Co., the same company who makes Coastal products. Wouldn't surprise me if they make a lot of the store-brand stuff.

auto trans fluid

You don't often see lubeguard mentioned on this site, but that is some good stuff.

I have seen it cure a chrysler mini van, 670 trans converter chatter after driving the van for only a few minutes!
