Okay so i recently went to advanced and asked what type of transmission fluid to get for my 1989 ford ranger 2x4 manual transmission with the 2.3l. they looked it up and told me to get ATF with MERCON. so i got a quart of the advance auto DEX III/M fluid. Is this correct???
THere is a tag on my transmission that says E87A-EF.
Is this the right fluid for this transmission? i dont know if i should use gear oil or ATF?
I reference it with this site http://www.drivetrain.com/parts_cata...y_vehicle.html
and the tag gave me this code M5R1.
Then i went to this site http://www.therangerstation.com/tech...nsmission.html
this is the fluid i bought http://shop.advanceautoparts.com/web..._T|GRP2071____
should i fill up the transmission today?
and looked and i think its the Mazda M50D-R1
But im not sure and it says ATF but i just want to make sure with you guys what do you think?
