FYI Kevin Merc V was approved for the 4r100 last year
For anyone who's followed the "trans fluid controversy
" I think we know Fords side of it. But, I'd love
to hear the defense of it.....
There's 3 factors involved;
1) the fluid itself
2) the transmission
3) Fords responsibility for the 4R100
So, what's changed since we were told that Mercon V was going to be bad for the 4R100 and should Not be put in it?
We know the fluid has not
Has the transmission? Being older, can it's seals and frictions now tolerate what was once damaging?
Or, the most likely, Ford no longer has any 4R100's under warranty and, now that they all have near 100K of mileage on them, are almost expected to be in need of repair.
I'd Really like to hear a, reasonable, explanation for why it is that Mercon V is no longer deemed harmful, as the designers of the 4R100, once told us it was,,,,,,,
Also, the Dexron III "compatible" replacement fluids, Are they Really Dexron III? OR just another "universal" fluid marketed, but not once intended, for a 4R100?
I'm playing it safe, I will Only put REAL Dexron III, now that I'm
the one who's responsible for my transmission, into it. Just like those who made it said to do when it was made
