What transmission fluid should I use?

I walked in to pep boys, asking about mercon V. They said that i should use Dextron III... they said the computer says that my car, 96 3.8, would use Dextron III. But on the tech articles, and forums, i find alot about mercon V. I have a problem with my car, when i come to a stop, or if im at looww rpm, the car shakes like crazy, and if i dont brake the right way, it stalls. What should i do?

That sounds like your problem right there.

Mercon V is the only fluid you should be using in that transmission.
