trans fluid type?

im told my 79 sachs westlake uses type FA trans fluid but all i had on hand was dextron II or III, cant remember which, because a mechanic friend of mine didnt think it should matter, i used the dextron rather than go to town for some FA, is this ok or should i replace the trans fluid with FA as soon as possible?

thanks

Re: trans fluid type?

dosn't matter, as long as it's transmission fluid and not gear oil. Dextron may even work a little better for you.
