Wanting to sevice my Ford Five Hundred transmission, owners manual call's for a Ford Part No. XT-8-QAW fluid, is this a special oil or just a Ford part no. for Mercon ATF?

Looking for a recommendation for ATF.

I have the 6 speed transaxle.


Thanks Jon

Automatic Transmission,CFT30......VTF [1]
No AMSOIL Product Recommendation
Automatic Transmission,F21......TIV

Your Five Hundred is not spec'd for Mercon or Mercon V, it uses Motorcraft Premium Automatic Transmission Fluid. Although any fluid meeting Ford WSS-M2C924-A would do, such as Mobil's ATF 3309.

I believe that 6 speed trans was made in conjunction with GM. So wouldn't it use the same fluid that GM uses? Dex 6....sorry to add more questions to your question.

Not in the Five Hundred, that's an Aisin trans. The 6F showed with the 3.5 in the 2008 Taurus.

Jon is that a Constant Velocity Transmission?
Might want to check before adding any fluid. I think the fluid for the CVT is pretty specific. Or at least was a few years ago when they first came out.

The transmission is an AISIN transmission and requires MC preminum as atated, which is Mobil #3309, which is the same as T-IV.

Any universal or multivehicle ATF mentioning 3309 or T-IV.

Amsoil, Redline, Royalpurple, Amalie, Maxlife.... are some.

Welcome to Bitog.

CVT = Continuously Variable Trans, not Constant Velocity.

anything that is licensed under the Mobil 3309 variation will work for your trans. if you are worried about warranty than stick to the motorcraft flavor.

Thanks for all your responses,

after reading some of your responses I went ahead and did a search on this site, I see this question has been asked before, I didn't use the correct words in my search

I do have the Automatic 6-Speed Tranaxle, not the CVT

Thanks Again!!

^^^what they said^^^ about Mobil 3309 and Toyota T-IV.

My niece has an '06 Fusion with the same transaxle and I've been using T-IV as I can get it from the Toyota dealer for half what Ford charges for their version.
