Well fellas and chicks, the vert is down for a while. On the way to work this morning 5th gear died on me. I think it was my fault but I'm not sure. I tried to downshift into third on the freeway from 4th but wound up back in fifth with a horible crunch. About 2 miles down the road the tranny started making some really horrible sounds so I put it back into fourth and the noises stopped. I pulled over anyway to minimize any damage that particulate that's floating around in there would do. Has anyone had any experience with Ford concerning transmissions and swapping over to a synthetic tranny fluid instead of the crap Mercon V they put in from the factory?
