So my tranny pan has a drain plug in it so Im going to just drain that out for now and refill it.
Approximately how much fluid will I need?

|bismic||Personally I believe it is the 100% filtration.|

our service interval is a lot less with the SP than with transmissions that had LV as the original fill
you have to wonder if any of that is fluid related ? or all the filter type ?

They are back to recommending LV again but the SP has treated me good for 15 years so I'm going to continue to use it

You're not supposed to mix them though

Ford never went back to SP for the 5r110 but they did revert for a few other applications and that's why they never phased it out like intended
but they did not suggest mixing SP and LV right away then they came around to approving
a lot of guys use the Valvoline High Mileage SV/LV fluid (it is not a Mercon approved fluid just Valvoline suggested replacement )

Ford has gone back and forth a couple times on this, but i'm with
and use Mercon SP.

|crankn101||Right on, thanks fellas. Ill refill it with LV and do the filter in a couple weeks.|

It is NOT Mercon V.
I get the Mercon SP, but LV works also. Even the Valvoline MaxLife has proven to work.

|066||Mercon LV. Should probably change the filter too|
