I'm pretty sure that Castrol's Dex 6 is the same stuff in Mobil's Syn 
bottle.  But I have no basis for such belief beyond something I read on 
the bottles way back.

I replace my fluid with Mobil 1 Synthetic but my car was shutting off when cold on drive. I replaced that tranny fluid with Dexron III like recommended and the problem persisted, until today. I am driving to Buffalo on business from Munroe Falls, OH which is N. of Akron and S. of Cleveland, so I thought that I would replace engine oil, rear diff. oil and tranny fluid. I used Castrol Dexron VI as in 6 and my transmission is the smmothest it has ever been. I only used the four quarts but I can't wait to get back and drain it again and refill with four fresh quarts and so on and so on until all the other stuff is out of there. Just some info for the listers.
