So, when folks say Type F and Dexron II are compatible, what it really means is, if you got a little Type F in your Dexron II or vice-a-versa, it shouldn’t hurt anything. Barring better evidence, I’d stick with the stock recommended fluid, and enjoy the firmer shifts from the shift kit.
Is ATF the same as Type F transmission fluid?
Ford Type F—an old ATF first introduced in 1967 and used in all Ford products prior to 1977, and in some until 1980; also used in various import vehicles of the period, including Mercury Capri, Jaguar, Mazda, Saab, Toyota, and Volvo. Type F is not compatible with any other ATF.
Is Type F transmission fluid the same as Dexron?
Type F has a higher friction coefficient. Dexron or Type A is NOT compatible with seals in Type F applications. The F is for the suffix in Ford’s specification, M2C33 suffix F. Do not use Dexron/Mercon in a Type F application.
Is Dexron 3 compatible with Type F?
Yes. A newer (in the last 40 years) rebuild of a C4 means it can use Dexron and work just fine. Some people like to use Type just because the antique service manuals say to. Some folks use Dexron and then a single quart of Type F for the additives.
What viscosity is Type F transmission fluid?
|Specific Gravity @ 60°F||0.864|
|cSt @ 40°C||43|
|cSt @ 100°C||7.6|
Can you mix Type F and Mercon?
It’s generally held that a quart or two of F and the rest of a C4 filled with Mercon works fine.
Is Type F fluid synthetic?
Lucas Semi-Synthetic Type F Automatic Transmission Fluid is blended from premium paraffinic and synthetic base oils (Groups II+ and Ill), with shear stable synthetic polymers and viscosity modifiers, combined with a high-quality additive package that includes anti-wear, anti-oxidants and corrosion inhibitors.
Can you use type F?

Type F is NOT friction modified and was developed by ford for duribility concerns in its early transmissions to allow the trans to engage the clutches and bands quicker. viscosity between the two fluids is nearly identical. either fluid can be used in your pump without concern.
Can you use Type F transmission fluid in a Dodge?
RAY: If you put Dexron, Mercon or Chrysler 7176 transmission fluid in just about any transmission, it will perform just fine. That’s because all of those are what are called “friction modified” products. That means, in layman’s terms, they are extra slippery.
Is it OK to mix ATF?
You should not mix the old transmission fluid with a new one. The main reason is it won’t offer you the ideal viscosity. At the same time, the mixing will reduce the performance of the transmission system. So it will cause overall engine performance.
Is ATF and Dexron 3 the same?
DEXRON is the trade name for a group of technical specifications of automatic transmission fluid (ATF) created by General Motors (GM).
