SP III

I found this link for the oil I want, Havoline ATF J, and the link:

http://www.caltex.com/hk/en/lubricants.asp

It isn't sold anywhere in North America. Havoline Corporate people didn't have a clue the product even existed. Try Hong Kong!

The only other stuff I have found meeting the requirement is from the Kia Dealer,
SP III ATF at around $6.25/quart and up.

How much does your dealer want for the Subaru/Idemitsu HP-ATF?

I think Nissan has a Nissan-matic-J or something; not sure about the J but I suspect it might be what they call a Jatco box. http://www.jatco.co.jp/ENGLISH/index.html
