Dexron 2 Transmission fluid is a multipurpose automatic transmission fluid for automotive vehicles. It also has applications in many manual transmissions including Ford MT75, as fitted on Modern Transit vans.
The automatic transmission is one of the most complicated mechanisms in modern automotive engineering. It consequently requires complex fluids for efficient operation. Rye Oil’s transmission fluid is manufactured from high quality solvent refined base oils, specially selected additives and friction modifiers. Therefore it produces a lubricant with excellent oxidation stability and frictional characteristics. This product is a Dexron 2 transmission fluid as a result this facilitates automatic transmissions, torque converters, power assisted steering systems and similar systems where Dexron 2 is specified.

Originally the DEXRON name was associated exclusively with automatic transmission fluids. GM later released DEXRON gear oils and other lubricants under the DEXRON brand. GM produced the original Dexron transmission fluid in 1968. Over the years, the original Dexron has been supplanted by Dexron-II, Dexron-IIE, Dexron-III, and Dexron-VI, which is the current fluid. GM has upgraded the Dexron specifications over the years; newer fluids are generally but not always backward compatible with previous fluids. As a result you can sometimes substitute older versions with the new fluid. There are still applications for which Dexron-VI either has not been proved suitable or deemed to be not necessary. There is therefore a market for fluids that meet the earlier specifications.
