2004 6.ol automatic mecron v?

is it ok to use mercon V or does it have to be mecron SP lil confused all i saw at store was this V. is it the same thing? thx guys!

my trannie last few days has been slipping while shifting thinking about adding a lil fluid but not sure where the fluid level should read! i dont want to add too much! the level defiantly isn't up towards the H ( high ) level at all! should i add some and see if slipping goes away!

Has to be SP or the newer fluid that is in the 6r140 TorqShift.

And it should be right in between the middle and the H (hot) line of the crosshatch when up to temp.

As the others stated, Mercon SP or LV ONLY.

If it is slipping I really doubt some fluid is gonna fix it...

In the ford literature it specifically states DO NOT MIX with mercon V. Similarly, many labels of mercon V specifically sat DO NOT USE IN PLACE OF Mercon SP. For instance, the Castrol Mercon V bottle states "Do not use this ATF in applications calling for MERCONŽ SP or Type F"

I agree with the prior poster that Ford seems to be the only ones bottling SP right now. Seems to be a pattern w/ Ford chemicals & lubes. There are some online vendors & sponsors here with good pricing on SP.

I had the sales dude in advance auto flip a bottle of mercon V and point to where it said Mercon SP. I said "Read the whole sentence dip$hit". Of course that's the same advance store where I saw a sales dude try to sell 90W gear oil to a guy needing hydraulic clutch fluid . . . .
