Ok, so AL4 Auto box.

OEM oil was Esso for ATF / 4HP20. But Part Number: 9730AE

Example here:

Reason: Clarified 4HP20 relates to oil not the Box.

BTW, it is an AL4, not a 4HP20. The 4HP20 is a much larger transmission, made by a different manufacturer and only fitted to cars with engines larger than 2.0 litres.

That's what the Specs say for the oil specifically (AL4 / 4HP20) - but yes, the box is an AL4. I'll amend the post to avoid confusion.
