Item: DEXTRON3P (Same Fit As Part # 550042065 )
ATF III, or "Dexron III" as it is more commonly known as is a premium fluid blend that provides added system protection. The selected base oils and special combinations of additives impart the special protective qualities that make this the premium choice in Automatic Transmission Fluids.
In Rovers, this fluid can be used as Automatic Transmission Fluid, Transfer Case Fluid or Power Steering Fluid (depending on vehicle and application.)
Tech Tip - Dexron III vs. ACE Fluid for Power Steering & Fluid Foaming: Not sure what fluid you should be using for your power steering on Discovery I or Range Rover Classic? Are you seeing some foaming in your fluid? It can be a little confusing depending on what you read. Here's some notes from our Land Rover Master Technician on the issue: Dexron II (the original OE spec fluid) was officially replaced by Dexron III and this is now the spec fluid for Range Rover Classic and Discovery I. That said, Land Rover phased out Dexron III with ACE fluid for Discovery Series II and later models. ACE fluid is a higher grade fluid that typically lasts longer and doesn't 'foam' like Dexron does when it starts to break down. At the dealership, we would often use ACE fluid when replacing fluid on a Discovery I or Classic because of this. The power steering pumps on Discovery Series II are essentially the same on the inside as the earlier vehicles, just the mounting points/housing are different. Fluid foaming can occur when the Dexron breaks down or when you have an air leak in the pump system. If your fluid is relatively new and you are still seeing foaming, look for leaks on your pump or at hose connections to your pump.
