Hello I will help you with your question,

The factory fill is Castrol 363 which is a DOT 3 spec fluid with a lubricant added. The DOT 4 is the same fluid with a higher boiling point so they are compatible.

You should not use any product marked synthetic, they will not mix with the conventional fluids.

If this were my vehicle I would use the Castrol 363, if you wish you can install DOT 4.

Please let me know if you have further questions

Thank you
