Default Type of Transmission fluid...

1999 ramvan 2500 with 130k miles, noticed tranny fluid down 1/2 quart, i dont know what is in there now, because i never replaced it since i had the van a year now, but it looks pretty fresh and clean, i want to just top it off, so i went to autozone, they said any tranny fluid would be fine, i didn't think that sounded right, any tips on what type to use?.

Level must be checked on level surface, transmission in neutral.

Proper Fluid is ATF+4. While a 1/2 quart of any type of fluid probably will not hurt anything, I'd not listen to AZ employees, or any AP employees unless you know them personally.
