Dude that sucks. Consider it a learning lesson. From the few minutes that I've read, I would have your fluid flushed.

Here is what I have found:
mercon sp vs. mercon v - Bing

At least you noticed. There's your silver lining.

Good luck.

I bet that you are frustrated, but a hundred bucks down the ****ter is nothing compared to repairing a transmission. Like I said before, you are lucky you noticed your mistake.

The only issue with flushing a transmission is you need to have some pressurized method of forcing the fluid throughout the torque converter. Just pouring oil through the fill tube will not flush the old fluid out but rather just mix the fluid and therefore you will never know if/when you have evacutated the old fluid.

Also, flushing the transmission will use A LOT more fluid than just the recommended fill capacity. $250.00 is not a bad price.

You could always drop the tranny and manually drain the converter.

Like I said, $250 is a lot of money, but not a bad price.

Good luck.

So i go to get it flushed today and the 7 dealership here have no openings to do it. Now i am going to pull my fifthwheel with it. So i hope i have some luck on my side


That was one of the most stupid things that i have done.
