you could use an ester oil to dissolve the additives, if you want 100% synthetic.

I bought the expedition new so it did go 160k miles on factory fill. And it looked good too after 160k miles. Another way to state my question could be if there are any so called lifetime factory fills that are based on dino atf?

Are you doing the work? If no drain plug - the B&M plug kits are easy to install . Find some copper crush washers (M14 maybe?) and toss the nylon seal. Then you can do what MoleKule said - flip the pan volume again once you have driven it a bit.

Have the Nissan dealer do a simple drain and fill on it. If they think there's an issue doing that service then they won't go through with it. Plus your wife will be mad at them if it takes a dive shortly after which I doubt it will. The additives

I changed the Mercon V factory fill in my 2002 Lincoln at 42K miles/8 years old. It wasn't the cleanest looking stuff. Just did the filter and another fluid change at 71K miles and the fluid was somewhat dirty and the filter quite dirty. I don't
