What is Type F transmission fluid equivalent?
This type of drive train fluid should not be used in automatics that require Type F. It can be replaced with Mercon or Mercon V specification.
Is ATF transmission fluid the same as Type F?
General Motors referred to its ATF as Dexron II and Ford’s specified fluid was labeled Mercon. Ford first produced its own ATF in 1967 and referred to as Type F. This fluid was used in all Ford transmissions until 1977 and most Ford transmissions until 1980.
What is the SAE of automatic transmission fluid?
J311: Fluid for Passenger Car Type Automatic Transmissions – SAE International.
Is ATF Type F synthetic?
Racing ATF – Quart Red Line’s Racing ATF is full-synthetic product designed for use in racing automatic transmissions which need the positive shift of a Type F automatic transmission fluid.
What viscosity is Type F transmission fluid?
|Specific Gravity @ 60°F||0.864|
|cSt @ 40°C||43|
|cSt @ 100°C||7.6|
Can you put Type F transmission fluid?
RAY: If you put Dexron, Mercon or Chrysler 7176 transmission fluid in just about any transmission, it will perform just fine. And in transmissions that are not designed for it, Type F fluid will cause rough shifts, and can even cause damage by making the torque converter engage before it should.
Can I use Type F transmission fluid?
Mobil Type F ATF is recommended by ExxonMobil for use in applications requiring Type F fluid as follows: Automatic transmissions in certain older Toyota, Mazda, Volvo, and other imported vehicles that require an ESW-M2C33-F fluid. In addition, this type of ATF is specified for some Ford power steering systems.
What weight is Type F transmission?
|Application||1.- Automatic Transmission 2.- Type F|
|Flash Point (°F)||207.0|
What is Type F hydraulic fluid?
Mobil Type F ATF is an automatic transmission fluid which is made from high quality base oils with viscosity index improvers, antioxidants, anti-wear agents, defoamants and special additives to provide the controlled frictional characteristics of a Type F fluid in automatic transmission applications.
What are the special grades of transmission fluid?
Examples for these special grades include full Synthetic CVT Transmission Fluid – SynGard CVT ATF. This grade is made special for this type of transmissions, which is belt-driven. The transmissions are very sensitive to the oil grade. Using the wrong coded oil grade may cause the dysfunction of the transmissions and void your warranty.
What is the difference between Type A and Type F fluid?
It was known as Type “A” suffix “A” fluid. This new fluid can stand higher temperatures caused by newly invented torque converters. Type A transmission fluid was a type F transmission fluid equivalent, which was used by ford motors and Toyota. This fluid was less smooth than type A.
Can I use Mercon Type H instead of Type F transmission fluid?
This type of drive train fluid should not be used in automatics that require Type F. It can be replaced with Mercon or Mercon V specification. Mercon Type H: An obsoleted Ford specification that differs from both General Motors Dexron and Ford Type F transmission fluids.
What is automatic transmission fluid (ATF)?
Automatic transmission fluid (ATF) is a special lubricant used in automatic gearboxes, hydraulic-power-assisted steering systems and in the transfer cases of 4WD systems of cars and trucks. Some manual transmissions also use this fluid.
