There is actually a special flushing procedure that a member wrote up on here which I followed and got almost 13 quarts out. Here is the link to the writeup, it is a very good writeup.

BTW, where are you getting the SP these days? Its not so easy to come by locally through the usual chains. I took a quart in to several stores and had them scan it - not even in the systems. And when I find it on line, its about double of what I got it for at Oreilly's a year or so ago. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Here is a technical bulletin that one of the tech posted on another thread about transmission fluid. It might help because the LV is much easier to find than the SP.

NOTE: Ford Special Service Message 21114
