ATF for your T-5 trans. Don't listen to anyone that says to put gear oil in it.

Nope. ATF for the T-5 like scotty said. The T-45 used more like a gear oil. But that's used on 96' and up stangs.

Yeah you're right. For some reason I was thinking Mercon V was thicker than ATF, but they are the same thing lol.

Autozone had a sale on their store brand Mercon V back when I got my Expy. $2.50 a bottle. I needed 14 bottles for the converter and the pan and the transfer case and they had 30 on the shelf so I just bought all 30 lol.

That's my cool story for the day.

The synchro blocker rings are carbon fiber/paper lined and need to be Mercon V soaked to work properly. Lack of lubrication (from wrong type or low fluid level) is the cause for most whining gearboxes. Gear oil it too thick, and may not reach all the areas inside. I've heard of guys using 10w 30 too......lol but once again Scotty is right; 3 qts will do the trick! (Hopefully)

I've always used the pennzoil synthetic atf in mine (177,000miles) and haven't had a problem yet. Just my 2cents.
