Use ATF+4 The original was ATF+3 which has been superseded. And ATF+3 and ATF+4 is synthetic. So your fluid IS synthetic.

If that Amsoil ATF label does not specifically state it is an ATF+4, it's the wrong stuff.

X2 on this! Either get Mopar +4, or use something like Wolfshead Universal Synthetic, which specifies it's ATF+4 compatible. If the Amsoil label says +4 compatible, than that's OK.

Read about the amsoil being too slippery. AllparForums: ATF+4 vs. Amsoil - Minivans · Pacifica - Allpar, the Chrysler Car Community

amsoil may be good for Ford or GM stuff, but just put in some Valvoline ATF+4 and go. It is good stuff.

You seem set on using it so I don't know why you even asked. If you just dump the pan, you will need about 5 quarts to fill it up again. Good luck.

I wouldn't use that Amsol ATF in your 32RH, they try to make their generic ATF sound like it will work as well in any and every possible type of automatic transmission which is BS... which is typical for Spamsoil's marketing hype. Go down to your local automotive parts store & find some good ATF+4 like from Valvoline, Castrol, etc. and use it instead. Where automatic transmissions are concerned, using the exact correct ATF is more critical than you can imagine.

Many components in our Jeeps are not all that sensitive to using a very specific type of lubrication... but our automatic transmissions definitely are. Use nothing but a product that specifically says ATF+4 on the FRONT LABEL.
