Donna, I thought we need Dexron III, and is there a negative effect in using Dexron VI?
I am not sure what actually the difference is between the different Dexron labels: Dexron III vs. Dexron IV vs. Dexron VI. (I didn't see a Dexron V yet, and I purchased Dexron IV for my steering).
Also, from the pic, your ATF seems grey? This should not be normal - it's light pink.

Addendum: In this case (that grey color), I would try to get rid of as much as I can of that grey stuff - it will kill your steering rack (if it didn't already).
Here are some methods - beware though they are from a v8, which is different from ours - but close enough for procedure, including cleaning the reservoir which has a build-in filter.
