Re: Fluid

I agree Mercon V, I just did a fluid filter change on mine, took 8 quarts also blew out all the lines. Are you changing the cooler? They claim you can't flush the thing out, so you need to replace whern you change tranies. I,m stll not sure on mine , I still have the Ford reman here if mine goes.
