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 . . . .
