from my experiance, if the fluid is that dirty, dont change it, the new fluid will wash whats left of the clutches off & itll be done for sure, chances are it needs to be rebuilt, if you leave the old fluid in youll probly get a little more life out of it. new fluid will nearly gaurantee its death early

I'd say use Dexron or Mercon, but it probably says what to use on the dipstick, right above the checking mark.
