Technical Service Information

The new Ford 5R110W "TorqShift" transmission
also uses a new transmission fluid called Mercon®SP,
and is not interchangeable with Mercon® or
Mercon®V. The use of any other transmission fluid
than Mercon®SP, can result in the transmission
failing to operate in a normal manner and/or
transmission failure. Ford recommends the
transmission fluid and bottom pan filter be changed
every 48,000 km (30,000 miles) regardless of normal
or special operating conditions.

REMOTE TRANSMISSION FILTER IN COOLER LINES
Remote Transmission Filter
This transmission is equipped with a remote fluid
filter, as shown in Figure 5. This filter passes ten
percent of the transmission fluid from the
transmission through a small orifice into a servicable
screw-on filter element. The filtered fluid is then
directed back into the rear lube circuit through the
large opening in the remote filter manifold.
