5 Gallon bucket of Merc V?

Anyone know where I can get 5 gal. bucket of Merc V transmission fluid at a good price? Preferably not synthetic because I can't afford that.

Mercon V is synthetic. The Dex/Mercon is not syn & NAPA has it for the best price I could find when I flushed my trans last summer. Don't know about 5gal buckets I bought 2 12qt cases.

I guess when I say I don't want sythetic I mean I don't want the boutique stuff, AMSoil, Wolfs Head, etc. I do want Merc V, not MD3. Looks like I'll just have to buy quarts.

why do you feel you need it ? the 4r100 was made for MD3, the older ones crap out if you put MV in them from what i've heard alot about. i'll stick with the old school stuff myself man.

I have a friend thats a mechanic at a ford dealership and he sees way more trucks cars and transmissions than I do, and I trust his word, simple as that. He says don't put MD3 in it, so I don't.

That sucks. I've been a mechanic since I was about 12 (I'm 33 now) working on diesels for my dad, so I know for the most part when a mechanic is an idiot, and I agree, a lot, if not most, are pretty stupid. This guy knows his ****. He knows my situation and isn't going to lead me astray, especially when he knows if something goes wrong he's gonna be the one helping me lol.
