I bought my 95 a year ago and it shifts fine. However I checked it today and it's low. Wen I bought it the guy said the trans had just been serviced. I don't know if it's mercon 3 or 5. Can I just add mercon 5? Are the fluids compatible? Don't want to change all of it in this weather.

Yeah you can add mercon w/ dexron III and you can also add mercon v. The mercon V is what I have been using for years. These cars originally had regular Mercon fluid specified for them.

Yeah thanks. I'm going to drain it all and add mercon v when it gets a little warmer and dryer out. Already did the 96 and it works great.

The Mercon V is a semi synthetic trans fluid That works very well in the 4R70W. It can be used as an upgrade to lower #s like Mercon III but can not go forward to replace like a Mercon VI.
