Post #1 by mluck » Sun Oct 22, 2017 9:39 am

had my car in for a little work and they said the tranny pan was leaking..i new it and was going to fix it,but winter is coming fast so i had them do it...my question is i noticed on the invoice..they used 2 quarts of multi-vehicle synthetic trans fluid..is this ok or do i need to put the type FA in it.

Should be ok.
On any rebuild with newer clutches i would use Mercon 5 which is synthetic.

Check with your builder, but all new clutches & bands are compatible with Mercon 5. The cost is high cause it is synthetic.
