Time out, lots of bad info in this thread. The B-series trucks never specified Mazda M5 fluid, they specified Mercon and then Mercon V. The only Ford that used the Mazda M5 fluid was the Fusion with the FNR5 transmission.

You meant to say 'it's heavy". Matters-not what the substance is called. What matters is the absence of pocket-dragging. What also matters is two edges of the Mustang that snags on pockets. So in essence, that is not a pocket gun. A pocket gun
