Tranny Fluid Question: Is Mercov V ok to use?
Secondly: How many Quarts?

Don't use Mercon V. We just had a long discussion on this. You need to use plain old Mercon. If you just drop the pan, that will drain about 5 or 6 quarts, but the transmission holds a total of like 12 or more I think. You will need even more than that if you are doing a complete flush.
