I would suggest Mercon/Dextron 5 and YES after you clean/replace the filter...add the Lucas Trans Tune and top with the Dextron.

My 92 LX auto tranny randomly goes in/out of torque converter lockup when going along the highway. It stays in 4th however, unless I make it drop to 3rd by pushing down on the gas. If I am not going above 60, the difference is barely perceptible, and after 20 or 30 minutes on an interstate, it seems to stop doing it, and just stays in 4th, with the TC locked. I rebuilt the tranny myself (so it must be good, right?) about 25,000 miles ago, and has probably been doing it ever since the rebuild. Maybe before the rebuild, but the driver was my sister in law, who isnt aware of such subleties.
