Anyone used this or have an opinion?

2003 Ford Superduty. I'll be doing a complete fluid exchange.

I believe a 2003 Super Duty would use Mercon V transmission fluid in the power steering.

I have it in my 03 Excursion now for only about 3K miles.

I used their "flush" kit from Amazon in an attempt to help with an issue I was having. Helped for a while, but it needs more work (booster or pump, not sure).

I use it in my cars with no ill effects. You could also use regular fluid and add Lubegard's PS additive.

Most Honda'a require an 11 [email protected] fluid; this fluid is barely a 6 cSt fluid.


The value of a scientific theory is its ability to prompt further study, not that it has any relation to the established facts of scientific reality.

It says on the bottle that it's okay for Hondas. If Honda fluid is that much thicker, steering feel would be different, but I doubt it would cause damage.

I've been using M1 ATF in Ford PS pumps for 20-25 years with outstanding results. Performs very well in sub zero temps, and have never had a pump failure.

I have type F in my Ford, coming up on 29 years now. I changed it out a few times, it was always clean and the pump is the original. I changed the fluid about a month ago when I replaced the hoses, that's the only repair the system ever needed. The LG fluid should be fine.
