Ford Announces More Stringent Specification Replacement for MERCON Automatic Transmission Fluid

Ford Customer Service Division (FCSD) announces MERCON V as the replacement for MERCON Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF). Effective July 1, the production and licensing for MERCON will cease.

Ford Customer Service Division (FCSD) announces MERCON V as the replacement for MERCON Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF). Effective July 1, the production and licensing for MERCON will cease. Automatic transmissions, power steering systems and manual transmissions previously requiring MERCON must, as of July 1, 2007, be serviced with MERCON V.

“All transmissions which recommended using MERCON ATF can now be serviced with MERCON V,” said Ron Romano, FCSD Service Lubricants Technical Expert. “MERCON V is a tighter specification which delivers better anti-oxidation, anti-wear and anti-shudder properties. It also provides increased protection against deposits, rust and corrosion. All of this helps ensure customers receive a better fluid.”

All automotive repair professionals are encouraged to make the necessary preparations with customers to ensure a seamless transition to the appropriate fluids once MERCON is discontinued. FCSD does not recommend the use of any products that claim to be the equivalent of MERCON.
