Does anyone know the Kia spec IV automatic transmission fluid specification? Such as flash point, viscosity, ...

Valvoline claimed its MAXLIFE DEX/MERC ATF meets Hyundai/Kia spec IV requirements. Since it is a ATF fluid "meets" requirements of multiple auto makers' transmissions, I wanted to make sure it meets or exceeds Kia's requirements for spec IV.

2012 Soul 6 speed auto tranny. Is spec IV fluid car model and year specific?
not sure, but you never know, the 2011 model was a 4-speed auto and its totally different for 2012 with the 6-spd. Anything that meets the specs listed in the back of your owners manual will work, pick your own brand.
