Um no your cant use "motor oil" in your trans, you have an auto.

you need to use ATF.

And how the hell are you rebuilding motors, yet you dont know you cant put 10-30 into a AUTOMATIC trans?!?

Automatic transmission fluid is different than motor oil.

An auto tranny needs the hydraulic properties of ATF to work.

I am ass, thats truth, but really man, get the owners manual and read it, then read through your repair manuals a few times. You are missing VERY common knowledge that you should know if you own a car.
