Thread: Power steering fluid

  1. #1

    Default Power steering fluid

    My owner's manual for my 1998 Mystique says Mercon Power Steering fluid, E6AZ-19582-AA. Is that Type F ATF?

    That is Mercon ATFluid or Dexron III ATFluid.

    The ATFluid Type F equivalent to Ford Specs would be ESW-M2C33-F (as specified in the 1996 Contour Manual).

    I looked in other years, the 1999 actually showed Type F, M2C33F

    the 95s where speced for type F atf while later year cars where spec'd for dextron/mercron III fluid in the power steering.

    in my 99 I used Mobil1 ATF when I had to refill it.

    I found the info in my owners manual, if I remember the info correctly ... just go to wal-mart and get what you want ... using the turkey baster methode to change it I used less then a quart ...

    when I openned up the power steering system on my 99 it didn't need a whole quart to fill it either.

    You should be able to find Type F at Walmart or auto parts stores.
