Ford F150 2006 transmission is down 1 litre. The one garage in this lovely town of 400 does not sell Mercon. Is there another transmission oil I could use. Need to travel 80 k tomorrow to larger centre and would be able to get proper oil there.

Hi, Mercon is the type of fluid not a brand. Motorcraft is the brand Ford uses but other companies like Valvoline, Dextron, Pennzoil and so on sell ATF with the Mercon blend. Just make sure not to mix Mercon and Mercon V blends. Good Luck Hope this Fixsya!

Comments: w/ Shallow Pan = 20 bolt holes 4 speed

Drive Trains : Four Wheel Drive

What does the dash indicator say and does the stick have an od button on it? there is only 1 3 speed for the 460 and only 1 4speed for the 460

Engines:{300, 302, 351w}, {400, 351m, 460}, {6.9L, 7.3L IDI}, {352, 360, 390, ect.}
Fluid:
Pre '77: Type F
Post '77: Mercon
Display: PRND21
Pan 17 bolts "Utah" shape
Ratios:
1st 2.46:1
2nd 1.46:1
3rd 1.00:1
Trans code: K

so you should have the 3 speed acording to the code

I lost my owner's manual, and I need to know the capacity of the manual transmission! Also, I was told to use MERCON 5, is that right?


well there are a few different transmissions they put in this truck.
Borg-Warner T-18 4speed takes SAE 80W
Ford S5-42 ZF 5 speed take Mercon 5
Mazda M50D 5 speed with overdrive takes Mercon 5
Mtsubishi FM132, FM146 5 speed with overdrive takes SAE 80W
It looks like they all take between 3 and 4 litres. You may have to call the dealership with the vin number to find out which transmission is in it but you could also just pull the drain plug out just a little bit and if the fluid is red then its mercon 5, if its brown and really thick fluid then its SAE 80W

Does the crown vic police intercepter take as much oil as the regular crown vic? (when changing the oil and filter)


I ~think~ the 1999 is the same as the 2000 (mine is a 2000 P71)

The 2000 CVPI (Crown Vic Police Interceptor) owners manual recommends the following:

Engine Oil - Motorcraft SAE 5W-30 Super Premium Motor Oil 5.0 quarts

Transmission Fluid - Motorcraft Mercon V ATF 13.9 quarts (fluids Mercon & Mercon V are NOT INTERCHANGEABLE, DO NOT MIX)

Fuel Tank - 19.0 gallons

Break Fluid - DOT 3


Rear Axle Lubricant - Motorcraft 80W-90 Premium Rear Axle Lubricant 3.75 pints (add 4 oz of Additive Friction Modifier C8AZ-19B546-A or equilavent meeting Ford Spec. EST-M2C118-A for complete refill of Traction-Lok Rear Axles)

Engine Data - 4.6L V8 Engine
Cubic Inches - 281
Required Fuel - 87 Octane
Firing Order - 1-3-7-2-6-5-4-8
Spark Plug Gap - 1.3-1.4 mm (0.052-0.056 inch)
Ignition System - Coil On Plug
Compression Ratio - 10.0:1

I hope this helps!

Manual Transmission fluid for Ford Escort ZX2


I know this sounds crazy according to Ford:

You can use-
Motorcraft MERCON Multi-Purpose (ATF) Transmission Fluid XT-2-QDX MERCON® Alternative Transaxle Fluid - SAE 75W90 Gear Oil F32Z-19C547-MA API GL-4
You are seeing that right, one instance they call for 75W90 and the other it is ATF. It is ok to run either, 75W90 will give you smoother shifts and less noise.

This transmission is filled through the VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor) hole.

What gear oil do i use in a 2000 ford focus 1.8tdi manual, its the one that you lift up a trigger to select reverse? thanks


MERCON (R) Multi-Purpose Automatic Transmission Fluid XT-2-QDX

CAUTION:
Using a transmission fluid that indicates a dual usage MERCON and MERCON V in a transmission application requiring MERCON, may cause internal transmission damage. The use of any fluid other than the recommended fluid may cause transmission damage. Some fluid labels may indicate dual usage such as MERCON and MERCON V. These dual-usage fluids are not to be used in transmissions that use only the MERCON type fluid. These dual-usage fluids may be used in transmissions that require MERCON V use.
