I believe it takes Mercon V. I'm pretty sure the transmission is the only thing that takes the SP, and both the power steering and transfer case take Mercon V,

but don't quote me on that. I could be wrong

What do you guys think in regards to draining the whole system; and putting new fluid in? Mine is black w/moisture and has some sort of residue in the tank; I normally drain and refill "all" of my fluids at 50k miles. Is it OK to run a synthetic ps fluid aka mercon V in our ps systems?

That's my plan...already picked three quarts of Mobil1 Syn ATF, 1 foot of 3/8 ID transline hose, and a Raybestos Magnefine in-line Transfilter. Just waiting for better weather.

Myockps: Do you plan to siphon out the old fluid, or how do you plan to drain it?
