Is Dextron 3/Mercon an acceptable tranny fluid?

I am attempting to do a tranny service. I went to part store and asked for a tranny fluid for my J30, and he said Dextron 3/Mercon will work.

Is he right? Any hint on tranny service DIY?

Dexron 3 is good to use.It states which fluid to use on your trans dipstick.Do not remove the trans oil pan as Infiniti does not use a filter.They only use a screen for oil pick-up.removing the pan is a waste of time.Draining the oil pan removes only approx.1/3 of total trans fluid.To completely remove all fluid it has to be done by a trans flush machine.By just draining and refilling the oil pan doesn't do much.
Good luck
