Royal Purple ATF is supposed to be within the requirements of Fords Mercon V

I usually run Royal Purple ATF in my trans....not the synchromesh royal purple because it wasn't out when I did my syn swap. I noticed the trans was easier to shift and with my hurst, the gear meshing noise got a little quieter. The good thing about running syn is it runs cooler....and a cool gear is a happy long lasting gear.

Now I'm running standard dino oil atf...idk the mercon level at all. lol.

whoops.... I got stupid there for a second! lol. The meshing got quieter, not louder with synthetic. That with cooler temps and shifting easier are all traits of synthetic atf in manual trannys.

I said I use dino oil now.... 'cause i'm cheap and broke and my tranny went boom! A 4 gal jug if dino ATF is $10. I like that price. lol.



I'd probably run the Synchromesh next time around....when I got the $30 to blow on oil. lol.
