Fluid - M/T: Fluid Type Specifications
The manual transmission models M50D; Borg-Warner T-18 and ZF model S5-42 each use Motorcraft MERCON© Multi-Purpose Automatic
Transmission Fluid XT-2-QDX or DDX (ESP-M2C166-H) or equivalent.

There should be a drain plug near the bottom of the transmission, the plug should be removed by inserting a 3/8" ratchet in the hole on the plug. Drain the oil.

There should be a similar plug higher on the transmission case, remove this and fill from there.

There is an oil drain located on side of tranny housing near speedometer unit. You will need the 90 weight containers with the long spout or a funnel. Remember this is messy and smelly so be prepared..:>)

2001 f250 diesel supercab transmission works good when cold but after you drive for about 4 or 5 miles & stop it will not shift properly & seems to slip except in d1 truck has 190k is full of oil

ok, if it's full of oil, but hasn't been flushed every 30k mi. then I would have the service performed for the transmission.

It may cost about $100 or more to do this.

If, however, the slippage doesn't go away, you're looking at another transmission, or a rebuild which is fairly costly, in the thousands.

Hope you can fix this problem economically.

Trying to find out how much oil the Triton V-10 takes when I do my oil change? I cant seem to find it or anyone who knows

It should be listed in the owners manual, but because of different oil cooler setups you may have to do the change yourself and add oil until the correct level is established..... for the first oil change.
Most likely 7 liters,but start with 5,run the engine to fill the oil filter,let it sit for 5 mins and recheck and fill to full.
Note the amount needed for next time.

Hesitation while holding accelerator steady

Hi, I had that sort of problem with my 98 wrx when I was on the open road & try to keep the same speed.Turned out my O2 sensor was faulty.A mechanic shop who got an oscilloscope can check the sensor(s) . I`m not sure how diesel works but I assume thay have O2 sensors too. Hope that helps.
