Hello, My friend's son just bought the vehicle in the title with appx. 60K. The car is 200 miles away so I haven't seen it or the owner's manual yet. The lad wants to change the trans. fluid and filter. The Maxlife red jug everyone (including me) swears by says "Mercon LV" on the label. I've tried searching here to no avail. Amsoil's site simply recommends one of their fluids. That's OK but it tells me nothing. Anyone know? Mercon THEN vs. Mercon NOW (Ha-Ha) Kira ps My position as automotive fluid know-it-all is at steak here. K.
