BS. NY Mustang!!!!
You need to do a search for the other thread on this subject. Here are the plain ans simple facts, not rumors but pure fact!!
Yes mercon/Dexron III ceased being made in June of 2007, once the supply is gone it's gone, so stock up!!! Just prior to this Ford released their TSB , which says it is now all of a sudden now okay to use Mercon V in the 4R100, even though your owners manual strictly says not to. You show me where they claim a reformulation!!!!! They don't and they never will because Mercon V is still Mercon V nothing at all has changed!! I contacted the oil companies that makes the stuff and they even admitted no change has been made to the formula of Mercon V. Does it say 'new and improved Mercon V" on the bottle? Nope!!! Just says "Mercon V" THERE WAS NO REFORMULATION!!! Many of us researched this, it was all over BITOG forum and proven over and over again. Do y'all really believe everything Ford tells you???? Think this is the first time they have sold out their customers for the allmighty $$$ ? They did the same thing with the CPS issue for years, charging $169 for a $25 part!!!! C'mon, what about the Gold maintenance FREE coolant that doesn't even meet min protection requirements right out of the jug!! But they saved thousands by going to one coolant for all their vehilcles. Listen I am here trying to educate folks, you don't have to listen to me, and I will not have hard feelings. You can put lemonade in your trans for all I care. But those that care about their trucks will dig a little deeper and only use what is best for their trucks.
I can't believe I went here again!!!
