You can look up all fluids and capacities on AMSOIL's Product Application Guide.

Manual Transmission: Use only Synthetic Mercon spec. No. ESR-M2163-A2 or equivalent - AMSOIL Synthetic Universal Automatic Transmission Fluid is the recommendation from AMSOIL.

Manual Transmission, 5-SPD ZF..........6.8 pints
Manual Transmission, 5-SPD Mazda..........7.7 pints
Manual Transmission, S5-42..........6.8 pints

Let me know if you would like a quote.

I am not sure. There has been ALOT of discussion/opinion about what to use - Mercon vs Mercon V. I found this article from 2006 that might help clarify things a bit for you - Ford Pulls the Plug on Mercon

The nice thing about AMSOIL Synthetic Universal Automatic Transmission Fluid is that it meets the requirements for both Mercon & Mercon V.

LOL. For some reason they go back and forth with pints and quarts. 7.7 pints = 3.85 quarts.

My truck's auto tranny seems to slip just a bit sometimes when going into overdrive and I'm hoping if I change the strainer and fluid it will help or do I have a bigger issue? How much fluid does it take?

7.3 Power Stroke
K&N Cold Air Intake/FIPK
4" Down Pipe and 3" duel exhaust (no Cat/Muffler)
Switchable IDM mod
