Superseding the part no. (83-22-0-403-249 ?) to the Dexron VI part no. is one thing,
but does that make it perfectly suitable for a drain and fill, or only for a flush and fill?
Right, so that was my issue. I really want to stay as OEM as possible even though some other fluids work out just fine.

So Supercourse, is that PN superseeded 100%? I'll have to call my dealer, but I'm wondering what is the current one and its cost.
