    Trans flush and rear diff are next.. Can anyone recommend a good Mercon V? I'm looking at a few options right now:

    Motorcraft
    Castrol Transmax
    Supertech

    Which of these are full synthetic, and is running it any better? I am staying away from Valvoline because I cannot get clear information on their mercon v licensing and compatibility.

    Anything certified as Mercon V, must be full synthetic.

      I believe mercon v specs require it to be a synthetic blend, I have yet to find a full synthetic mercon v besides mobil 1 atf. Maybe I'm overthinking it, maybe it's all marketing & semantics.

      What do you use in your transmission joe?

      Can't go wrong when you use the Motorcraft Mercon V considering that was what was used in it from the factory.

      Motorcraft... at recommended change intervals.

      Mobil One Mercon, (not 5), was a good choice for my 95 F150... for 175k of its 225k miles... but for the money... and a deep pan (17 quarts total), is very expensive.
