You should be ok, since both cars will more than likely be able to take either dextron 2 or 3 trans fluid.

Dont know about that. When you look at them there is always a specific ford one and a GM one, both the same dexron rating.

Thats just because the Ford one is designed to break faster!!!:D

Seriously though, I wouldn't have thought it would do any harm. K-mart junk is doing fine in my car at the moment:whistling ! It should all do the same job shouldn't it?

Depends... In one of our other cars we have to use a specific trans fluid... If we dont the car stalls all the time on idle etc... We found out when the mechanic put in a trans fluid he figured was fine for it, but was different to that reccomended by the manufacturer. Useless mechanic anyway, he put a screwdriver or something through the radiator then just patched it up and didnt mention it... the head ended up cracking because of it... cost us a fortune.
