Normally a grease would go in but you could call the parts store, they could look it up for you.

Use what it calls for. Many of the standard transmissions use an atf type fluid. The manual calls for Mercon, but that has been superseded by Mercon V.

Automatic fluid is thinner, I would not use it, refer to your vehicle’s owner’s manual

The manual says Mercon, which is ATF.
