Terminology question and Fluid Question.

Automatic Trans = Transaxle = GL-5
Front Differential = Final Drive = GL-5
Rear Differential = Rear Differential (hehe) = GL-5
Now the big question is, does the Automatic Transmission take GL-5 as its lubericant? It currently has ATF/Dextron/Red crap that the previous owner must have put in. A big factor here is that the Transmission has a hard time shifting into Second and Fourth and slips under heavey acceleration.

the API GL-5 goes in the front diff of the auto tranny, and the rear diff - I have noticed a few errors (typos/formatting) in my FSM - this would not be the first
your transmission problems sound like the previous owner drove the car hard - or that he/she never changed the tranny fluid - which is something critical on Soobs

Anyways, on the Engines Service part of the image, on the right side, it says auto trans uses AF3, which I assume is ATF Dexron III. It DOES take ATF in the transmission section. Make sure that you don't confuse the fill/dipsticks.

edit: well this car has been on the owner merry-go-round. I know a female college student and a Indian has owned the car, both prolly beat the hell out of the thing before I stumbled upon it. Besides the trans, the car is in near mint condition and the motor purrs. for 250$ I consider it a steal.
