    MERCON was discontinued in 2006. You can no longer buy MERCON anywhere. You can buy fluids that say they are for use where MERCON was specified, but those are not MERCON licensed fluids. Do they still meet the now obsolete MERCON specs? Your guess is as good as mine.

    In 2006 MERCON V was changed to be the replacement for MERCON. Ford did not send out new dipsticks with the updated information.

    I don't understand why you haven't changed to Mobil 1 if you like it so much. I would have.

    You don't even need to change the filter. It only needs to be changed when the trans is rebuilt. It's so coarse that it can't plug.

    Any fluid that has a MERCON V license will work fine. If you want the best I recommend Mobil 1 Synthetic ATF.
