I apologize in advance if I am asking a question already asked. The information seems to be ever changing and I want to make sure I am doing this right. I have a 2002 Ford Escape with an automatic cd4e trans. I have read that you should use Mercron only, which is no longer licensed. I also read that you can now use Mercron-v as it was made backward compatible. I just bought this truck with 70k on it, and the fluid has been changed once around 50k. I have no clue what is in there at this time as far as fluid. My questions are this. Can I use mercron-v? Also, can the 2 be mixed at all? I dont want this trans to fail, and I appreciate your help. Thanks so much!
