ABSOLUTLY!!! Amsoil, it's the best there is, handles heat and protects better than anything else you can buy IMHO.

If you use Amsoil, be sure to use the Low Viscosity. Their regular atf is not Mercon SP compatible.

Mercon SP/LV
ot Valvoline Max life Dex Merc
is stated on the Bottle to be OK for Merc SP/LV
mater of fact Valvoline told Me they sell in bulk to a lot of ford dealers because it is also compatible with other types and keeps the amount of fluids they need to stock lower ( think Ford dealer with a used vehicle lot or multi Brand lot

and the service Dept

Well looks like Motorcraft sp/lv is $8.99 a quart while Amsoil is either $8.90 or $11.50 depending if your a preferred customer or not. You can also buy a "6 month trial preferred membership" for $10.

Has anyone had a bad experience using Amsoil low viscosity? I havnt found where it "meets or exceeds factory SP/LV specifications", or if its simply "compatible with".

Please collect and message me Shell, Rotella oil cap codes aka "my miles matter" I'm trying to save up for a hat or something.
