I need a little help here, is everyone using Mercon V fluid? The manual says to use Mercon V and nothing else, is this correct?

Also I keep trying to check the fluid level and I think the fluid may be too hot. (In Arizona 100 degree heat) I can never tell on the dipstick exactly where the level is, its just to thin. At first I thought it was low so i added about a quart and then got the same reading as before. I guess I'm going to have to let it cool down and try again.
