Now here's a question right up my alley. I owned a 1989 5.0 with Automatic transmission & still have the original owners guide. On page 149 both automatic & manual transmissions use Motorcraft MERCON Automatic Transmission fluid. The ford part number is XT-2QDX.

gustang is correct...just to build on his answer I worked as a contractor at the Ford plant that built that particular transmission and that is what the engineers specified.
