The Mercon Debate
I've been searching for weeks to the answer for my question.
I've got a 97 Ranger, 2.3l, 2WD, manual transmission.
I cannot find out whether the appropriate tranny fluid is "Mercon," "DexIII/Mercon" or "Mercon V."
The best I have been able to find out is that "Mercon" (which has been officially de-licensed by Ford) has been replaced by the more-synthetic Mercon V, and is backwards compatible. Has anyone come across this, or can shed some light? Thanks!
