Question What type of transmission fluid?

It looks like my ATF is a little low in my 96 XJ6 VDP.

Can someone tell me which type of fluid is recommended for this model?

Hopefully something I can pick up at my local auto parts store here in South Texas.

Seems like a simple enough question but I even called the local Jag dealer service and they couldn't tell me which I think was just laziness on his part.

Thanks for any help.

Standard Dexron 3.

Nothing special required in that transmission.

I use "Synthetic Multi Vehicle ATF", and all is fine.
