Hello, I can not find information anywhere about which transmission fluid type to use. Autozone said to use generic ATF fluid, but I want to make sure that is compatible with the car.
The reason why I need fluid is due to a radiator change after a slight accident, and a good amount leaked out before I could plug the lines.

I appreciate your help!

Manual says:

Automatic transmission fluid 7.4 US qt. (7.0 l) MICHANG ATF SP-IV, SK ATF SP-IV, NOCA ATF SP-IV, HYUNDAI genuine ATF SP-IV or other brands meeting the above specification approved by HYUNDAI Motor Co

Looks like Valvoline Multi-Vehicle (ATF) Full Synthetic Automatic Transmission Fluid, Red, is a compliant transmission fluid.

easier to just go to the dealership and have them fill it.
Much easier to fill right when Palisade is on a lift and you can get to the fill plug.
It doesn't have a regular fill tube under the hood

Evidently having the right amount is critical. Guessing it will take a professional to do it right.. and mixing fluids is generally not a good idea. This is something I would trust the dealer on.. with fingers crossed.

There is actually a cover/plug you remove to check the fill level. It will come out of that opening when full. As long as it compatible/meets requirements with oem fluid you will be fine.

Anyone try the Valvoline Multi-Vehicle (ATF) Full Synthetic Automatic Transmission Fluid yet in their Palisade?
Valvoline’s site product finder lists it as recommended ATF for a 2021 AWD Palisade. This
guy on YouTube gives a good DIY video on how to drain almost a gallon and refill. He’s using full synthetic Amsoil though. Much more expensive option than Valvoline …:oops: .... Was wondering if a gallon of ATF drain and refill just to check out the color of the fluid would be worth it.

Crickets......C'Mon.......No Takers? Nobody interested enough to seem how many metal filings are on stuck to that magnetic plug? Nobody willing to try out a gallon of Maxlife ATF in their Palisade?

First off, I wouldn't drain and change if it wasn't required. Second, I sure as hell wouldn't put Valvoline in it, the other guy using Amsoil would be my choice as well.

Fair Enough. I do a fair amount of bass boat towing in the Summer, but don't rack up a lot of miles on the road, so I am sure the fluid is going from red to black well before 60K Miles.
