    That is false. You are fine to switch to synthetic. If you asked you dealer what fluid to use they may tell you to use DEX VI. DEX VI only comes in synthetic due to how low of a viscosity it is. The synthetic fluid is much better for your trans.


    Let me know if I can help you out with the fluid and filter.
