Re: atf?

Yes, you can use a "multi purpose", just make sure it is Mercon III or Mercon V rated.

Valvoline has Mercon V, as well as the Mercon Maxgrade.

If they don't make Just the plain Mercon anymore what should I be using in my 96 E4OD?

Re: atf?

Any current version of Mercon meets or exceeds the older versions.

But when I've asked at the 3 stores they tell me they don't have any Mercon.
So, I hate to ask, but.
What ATF do I need to add to my 1996 7.3 AT? It's just a little low.

Re: atf?

Are you aware that Mercon V is a designation of fluid, and not a brand?

Even Walmart carries Valvoline's Mercon V rated ATF, among others.

Re: atf?

Yes I am csp, but thanks.
I guess my question should be
"I have a 1996 7.3, the owners manual says I should use Mercon. Mercon is no longer produced, do I substitute Mercon V?"
Even if my transmission has Mercon in it (I have no idea what's in it) is Mercon V compatible, and I can just add it? I'm about a pint low.
