Question 2007 Mustang V6 Standard Transmission Oil Change

Hey guys, new to the forums here.

Had a question. I own a 2007 Ford Mustang, V6 with a standard transmission. Bought it used with 29,000 miles from a ford dealership about 2 years ago. I was new to standards back then and I guess I still can be considered new.

I've changed the oil, oil filter, etc on the car many times... but what I could never figure out, was where to actually change the transmission fluid? Or does the car not have transmission fluid? If it does, where can I locate it? And what kind of fluid does it take?

(I assume the dealer changed the oil/fluid before it was put on the lot to sell, but since then, its not been changed)

Would appreciate any help.

Regards,
Justin

There are two plugs on the transmission, drain and fill. Remove both with a 3/8 socket wrench without an attachment. You may need a stubby extension to get the upper plug. Drain and refill using a pump until it reaches the bottom of the upper hole. If I recall correctly, it's just under 3 quarts.

Ford uses Mercon ATF. Yes...ATF in a manual transmission. Check your owner's manual. A lot of people replace it with Amsoil or Mobil 1 ATF.

Thanks for replying!

About how often should that be changed? Once every 6 months? More often than an automatic transmission?

I think the Ford recommended drain/refill or manual transmissions is 100,000 miles.

That said, I changed the fluid in mine at 9000 miles and noticed a lot of initial break-in wear particles (it looked fairly metallic).

The AMSOIL website is a great tool. Even if you don't buy AMSOIL products, their on-line ordering can tell you capacities for the various cars systems.

I out the AMSOIL full synthetic ATF in my GT's manual transmission. It uses he same fluid as the v6 manual trans as well.
