The transmission fluid you use should have a Ford approval number on the back of the bottle. If it doesn't, then any warranty done by a Ford Dealer on the trans since 1996 is void. Most trans have a 100K mile warranty when new and after any complete replacements. Using the wrong Spec. trans fluid will damage the transmission and always check the level when the engine is hot as ATF expands when heated. Mobil ATF D/M will work... Mobil Synthetic ATF won't in your Explorer! Ford comes with Exxon ATF from the factory and owners state that it's not the best.

What kind or brand of automatic transmission fluid i should use in 2002 nissan sentra


Just standard ATF, Not type F. Actually I have heard you can use any Tranny fluid in Non Ford models but can only use Type F fluid in Ford model vehicles. I used to use type F in my MOPAR with Performance engine and Tranny with no problems. But if you are worried then use ATF or ATF+4 fluid and you should be fine.

I have a 1996 ford taurus. when i stop it does not go back into gear until i press on the gas. when it runs it runs fine


Check the transmission fluid level.

Do this by turning on vehicle, shift through all gears 2x, then leave in neutral.

Pull the transmission dipstick out, clean it off, insert transmission dipstick and pull out again.

The fluid should be in the crosshatched area.

If it is low you will need to add ATF fluid in the dipstick hole.

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.
