If you have an automatic make sure it meets mercon V..
also mercon and mercon V have some specs that arent interchangeable..
which makes you wonder how they can spec one fluid for both...

Check out what RP had to say about meeting the Mercon V spec:
John,

The MaxATF is a Ford Mercon rated product and is suitable for now warranty Mercon V applications as our choice of a fully synthetic base stock does not allow us to claim the Mercon V warranty from Ford as they require the use of a refined mineral oil base stock.

If your vehicle is still under warranty - we do not offer a warranty recognized product -

Thanks for thinking of RP.

David
