Nice! Thanks Zmann!

Well I could always limp it to my work, but its also supposed to warm up a few degrees later this week so I should be ok, lol.

Ok, so LV is the trans fluid I should be re-filling with? And its compatible with whatever is currently in there?

Oh, yes. internal filter

you should have Mercon LV now ,, the older ones used SP but they discontinued it and LV/SP are compatible

you probably are stuck getting it at Ford as far as the Filter rumor Has it Fram is the OEM and it was true for the older unit I replaced the screen filter on ,, it was the exact same part ,,

I grabbed a filter today at Napa, came with new gasket. I also asked for a couple Qts of mercon LV.....was in a hurry but just checked it out, doesnt look like its the right stuff.
Its Castrol but says Mercon and Mercon V (not to be used where SP is called for)

Not sure why they sold me that crap, either way ill return it tomorrow.
