Heya folks, welcome to my very first post on your most righteous forum!!
Wait a moment, that came out wrong...*Ahem*
Thanks for having me! I actually found this forum a month or 2 ago when we first got our 147, let me just say thanks for all the help you guys have given us so far with our car all unbeknownst to you!
So we got a 2002 147 Selespeed 2.0TS, when we got it, the clutch was shot, so we had it replaced (Thanks for all your help with pinpointing the issue btw), and when we got it back our Selespeed actuator fluid level was low. Once again surfing your forums I ascertained that as an alternative to the probably pricy Alfa-recommended fluid, I could use Dextron III(Mobil?). Upon searching earlier tonight I found that Dextron III was discontinued and that it had been replaced with 4. I couldn't get a lot of info about it, certainly none pertaining to use in a 147, so I bit the bullet and decided that asking you guys directly was probably my best course of action.
To cut a long story short, is Dextron 4 indeed completely safe to use as an alternative to the Dextron 3?
Thanks in advance for any info you can offer me folks. Loving this little car, even though it likes to beep at us quite a bit..Nothing serious just the usual "We probably need to replace the brake switch" and various other Italian electronics issues. I haven't felt so loved or talked to by a vehicle since my last Vespa..
