    Dexron 3 works for anything calling for dextron 2 or 3.

    Trickshift is not all that it's made out to be. It's pretty much just type F and dexron mixed together

    It will be a funny color with red and blue mixed together but that won't matter.

    Some people use clear hydraulic fluid in their transmissions. Just makes it harder to tell what fluid is leaking.
    I don't recommend using hydraulic fluid if the proper automatic transmission fluid is available.

    a friend used to work for the local Mobil Oil refinery. They had the contract to manufacture Trick Shift (a number of years ago). He asked the engineers about the product and they told him not to use it in his car. Mobil got the contract because they were the low bidder and they were the low bidder because they barely met the minimum specs for the product. Use a good brand of Dexron and you'll be fine. Good luck.

    GM/Opel sells cars in Europe, check out what's available for those automatic trannys. I'd imagine they have to be the same.
