ATF is pretty good. The "sludge cleaners" are thinner, and state you should NOT drive the vehicle. ATF will allow you to drive the vehicle. You do need to drain out a quart, and then add to the "full" indicator level. Use most any ATF brand. Expensive isn't needed here, as all of them have the detergents in them, and viscosity is close (plus its modified by 4 quarts of real engine oil).
