Just buy some of this from Supercheap, Repco, Autobarn, etc. You are talking about fluid for an automatic transmission?

If you have a owners manual or workshop manual, it will specify the type in there.

We tend to stick with the manufacturer's recommendations as they've done testing back up their specs.

CORRECTION: Castol TQ95 is the correct ATF for 4 speed BTR autos as mentioned in the post and thread below.

Castrol tq95 in the btr 4 speeder.
Dexron is a holden auto fluid.
Do not run dex 3 in a ford 4 speed trans.
Go to the Castrol site and type in your model and I guarantee it will recommend tq95,its made specifically for the btr ford 4 speed.
Every 4 speed auto from ea to au is meant to run tq95.
Only time you run dex 3 in a falcon is in a manual box.
Its to do with friction coefficient or something similar,the oils are different and have different properties.
