Trans filter

My Trans temp seems to be running a bit high lately. I thought I'dtry changing the Trans filter and see if that helps. How much fluid should I get? I know it's on here but can't search on my phone for some reason...

I think it's 8-9 quarts just draining the pan and changing the in-line filter. What temps do you consider high? May just be the warmer weather, no? Anyways, your supposed to change fluid every 30k miles and use mercon V. I got it from Ford but not sure where else to buy it.

I pulled the plug and drained it, then I started truck and let it run for 1 min. Then killed it and a lot more came out. I changed the filter up front, then put plug back in and it took 9 quarts of Mercon SP and I need about a 1/2 quart of SP to top it off. I run the Mercon SP cus its what written on the handle.

Mercon V is not the correct fluid for a 5R110 automatic. You need a Mercon SP spec fluid.

Mercon SP or Mercon LV. Ford has changed to LV. They can be mixed.

As others have said - Mercon V is wrong and it will ruin your solenoids. Also, very little reason to change the interna; filter. It is just a screen. If it plugs up you jave trashed the transmission. Draining it from the plug and replacing the external filter is easy and quite sufficient.

Any tips on the filter? I know for oil and fuel filters it's motorcraft or racor only. Same with Trans filter? Or can I pick something up anywhere?

Yea, sorry about that. My mistake, it is SP. Maybe it was Mercon V for the power steering.
