Better download the service and owners manuals just to be sure, but I think it's ATF.

Couple of guys here with MF Hydros, better let them weigh in too.

All i have read says ATF but i read if the charge pump or hydro is getting soft due to wear they have used 10w30 motor oil to firm up the feel, no personal experience on that fix,just what i read somewhere .
