Trany fluid

I checked my fluid today and it had that smell we dont want and i will be doing a filter change in the morning. Do we have to use the motorcraft fluid in these trucks? If so which one do we use, SP or LV? Thanks for the info

LV. Might be an idea to find out why it got hot.

How long since the last change?

Drain and fill will use 8 quarts. In order to get it all out will need a different process. A heated machine is one way, your local dealer may or may not have this.

Mercon SP or Mercon LV only. Ford changed to LV a while back, but you can find SP at most dealers.

The external filter is up by the front of motor. Ford thinks they are made of gold. On line you can get a NTZ one for $12.99

[NTZ09-C09B] - Ford Torqshift transmission external Transmission Filter(replaces FT145)-Includes O-ring - Diesel Filters,Additives,brake rotors, and brake pads for Chevy, Dodge and Ford Diesel Trucks

If it smells bad, I would suggest you find a dealer to do a heated change. Get new fluid in there.

I hate to say but I have to go to the dealer for this, 40 bucks each( FML).I want to get it change now and not wait a few days for the filters to show up. I got about 20K-25K on the change The thing Im confused about is the fluid still has a good red color but smells burt.

What fluid was used in last change?

Burnt smell at only 25,000 seems like something is up.
