The fluid should be about half an inch below the fill plug opening. Once warmed up, this helps make shifts feel like butter. Two special tools are available for this purpose a fitting and a pressure pump. Transmission shifts smoothly warm or cold. Your shifts will be firm and velvet smooth.

I called my local Ford dealership and the could not give me an answer.
You will be pumping 2. My stang shifts perfectly fine. I have a 5 speed tremec in my stang which I found out uses automatic Mercon V fluid from the Ford factory.

Amsoil, Mobil 1, Redline, or Royal Purple I just asked the same question, but I did do a little Google research first. Holy cow, I cannot even believe the difference it makes! I know its a stick but that's what they used. Can I used this transmission fluid on my 2003 ford cobra. For us, and for the performance shops that might be doing rebuilds, modifications, etc. Ford designs their equipment around their own fluid. I think that maybe it will break in a bit with the new fluid and get better as time goes on. Good stuff, American Company, owned by an Air Force Veteran.
At first Ford could not make it stick while testing and didn't know why it was doing this. Simply explained, this means the oil being used is a multi-viscosity application. Note:It will be necessary to lock the pulley in position using… 2005 Ford Mustang bulb replacement: Purchase the correct replacement bulb s first, before disassembling the vehicle. I still wasn't satisfied though and since I had recently used Royal Purple in my differential fluid change I decided to go ahead and change the tranny fluid to Royal Purple as well. This is a great lubricant and can get rid of a lot of chatter in a transmission so it is worth a try. A hand pump equipped with a rubber hose can be used to pump the fluid up into the pan. I owned that car for about 12 years doing every possible modification you can think of to it ending with a built 347 dart block turbo engine, it put down 600hp to the wheels.
