Ford dealership sells the proper fluid. It is specifically blended for your particular Ford-Getrag Transmission. This thread does a great disservice to the Focus community because 90% of the opinion is based upon gross ignorance. Recommendations to use alternative fluids are not appropriate and damage may result. Read your Operator's Manual in the glove box. If you don't have one, order one at the dealer or on ebay. It tells you what fluids to use. There are people on this forum that don't know a thing about lubricants aside from them being slippery, but they choose to recommend alternate products without any technical basis or understanding. This is really dangerous.
