I have a small leak up by the radiator junction block. All I want to do is to top off the transmission at the side filler plug. I've read the transmission caution tag and it say's Use dealer part# 83229407858 or 859 Dexron III only. So the questions is.... can I just go to any auto parts store and by off the shelf DexronIII and top off the transmission? If I can do that then what is the best compatible manufacture of Dexron III out there. I really don't want any mixing incompatibilities.
Thanks for the help.

That's your power steering. It's common for the tube underneath to leak.
