Cross Flow with Automatic?

Post #1 by papawsfalcons » Tue Feb 25, 2020 8:12 pm

I know this may be a silly question? does my Aussie X-flow with the automatic use Type F transmission fluid? Thanks!

The type F trans fuild was used in US Ford cars & trucks well into the late 1970''s and probally until end of production of the C4's I always use it in my C4's. I don't know for sure about what the Austrians used for transmissions but maybe you can search online for a copy of an Australian car owners manual for the year of your engine and trans? If you post a picture of your trans I can probably ID it. Good luck :thumbup: :nod:

Borg Warner 3spd automatics along with Ford C-4s were used behind Crossflows.

Dexon 3 if you can get it. Just top it off, no full fluid replacement. If it came with fluid in it.


You can use anything in the earlier Borg Warner Model 35 trans. Its a Type F or Type H ATF replacement.
