I looked through all of the old forums and could not find anything that directly addressed this topic. The only trans fluid that I can find in the stores (multiple stores) is either Quaker State or Valvoline synthetic trans fluid. Both of which only state that they meet the requirements for Dexron III-Mercon and Mercon V. Is this the appropriate trans fluid to use ('97 4R70W)? I have not found anything that simply stated Mercon V trans fluid. Should I get the other stuff or should I just go to Ford on Monday and get their trans fluid? Also, '96 and up $r70W's came from the factory with Mercon V correct?
