What kind of oil is used in the transmission of a 1989 Mustang LX with 5.0 engine and 5 speed transmission?
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.
Easier to fill if u remove the shifter and pour it in the top of the trans after removing the fill plug of course
type f transmission fluid. i believe
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.
