This is not complicated.....go to your nearest auto parts store and ask which one is made for your vehicle.

Your manual has the following chart (a replacement manual PDF is available under the Resources pull-down menu if somebody stole yours).

GM 12377985 is similar to Dexron ATF but it's not identical. Don't use ATF. Find something on the shelf that says it conforms to the GM 12377985 specification for synthetic PSF.
