+1! I'm very pro Motorcraft.. 362,718 on my 2001 is why. All it ever got was Motorcraft fluids and filters. To me that says a lot..Ford started filling with their synthetic with the 03s, and back speced to older Focuses. They have a service bulletin on this. Go to ford and get 2 pints of their synthetic and use it. Too many who contribute are guessing, and that could be costly if followed.
So I did decide to get the Motorcraft fluid from Ford. And to be honest I am not impressed. I had read many posts about how peoples transmissions shifted really smoothly, but I only noticed a difference from 3rd to 4th gear. For the money and confusion I dont really think it was worth. Now if the transmission last longer than car because of the change than worth it, but I just dont know.
