Most likely ATF for my new ZF

I'm looking to find out what ATF to use in my new tranny. I know ZF has a website with ALL of the 100's of names of suitable fluid, but the index is overwhelming.

Does anyone have the name of one that's likely to be on the shelf at West, or AutoZone or similar. This is a ZF-6 model.

Thank you!

I'll second this question. It's been almost 2 years since I replaced the ATF fluid and it may be time now. The filler cap is stampted (and documentation specifies) ATF-A. I don't think there is such a thing as ATF-A, though - not in any store I've been to. So, what is ATF-A an what kind of transmission fluid would be appropriate?

This is for 4JH2E with some sort of KM transmission (can't remember the specific model).

Juno I think the last F I got was from AutoZone. Yellow plastic bottle. I had to look hard for it.

When I modified the old trans for racing I used B&M Trick Shift in all the c4 and c6 and th350 and 400's. You might want to see if there is a replacement guide on the bottle.
