    You can use Dexron III on your car since it is backwards compatible to Dexron II. The difference is that III has a better cooling property than II along with detergents. If you want to use synthetic you can even use Mercon 5 as that is the equivalent. However, if it states that you should use III don't go backwards and use II as that can damage to your transmission.

    I thought that Mercon 5 is for Ford? Are you sure its equivalent to Dexron III?

    As said before dex 3 is backwardscompatible with dex 2. You can use Castrol safely. Cheaper alternatives will be Petron Dex 3 (around P150 per liter ) and Total Dex 3 (P175 per liter)

    MERCON is what Ford calls their suggested atf but is comparable to Dexron III, Mercon V is the synthetic atf that Ford came out with in 1997. SO if you want non-synthetic you would use Dexron III/Mercon and if you wnat synthetic it would be Mercon V. If you look at most Dexron III atf sold it is labeled Dexron III/Mercon as they are equivalent.
