    Just saw that the new ford spec for the T-Case is mercon LV. I saw it on amsoil website for the T-case.

    Are you running blue or red in your t case?

    Did confirm with ford that Mercon LV is fine in t case now.

    I can 100% confirm that LV is good in the T-case. Just talked with a Ford Tech buddy about it last week.

    I answered that question some where else on this forum recently. It does not matter IMO what fluid is in it, as long as fresh. The red amsoil (which i have in mine) was xl12 compliant. xl12 was proven to just be old mercon formula and the mercon v was not safe for t case (although many year trucks came with mercon v in the t case stock, lol) Ford said if you dont run xl12, it will break NOTHING ELSE, not mercon v etc even though it was put in originally. Now all of a sudden, lv is ok? This makes no sense, unless they changes lv formula.

    Amsoil had xl12 spec meet listed under the red on their site, this is not stated on the blue (lv) so it makes me think no formula change was done to LV.

    Just keep it changed every 30k or so. That being said I have a lot of blue amsoil in stock so i will be putting that in soon. I would not be afraid to run red again.

    According to my friend, there was no change to the LV "formula". He states that according to what he was told in training, that it always would have been fine but they hadn't completed testing with it.

    Which is exactly why i dont think it matter which of these mercon fluids are used. Our transfer case is a very rudimentary piece, it uses a chain and that's it basically lol. The failures are very small and are due to just an unfortunately bad part in the run or owner abuse. If it was common failure, there would be a recall or TSB. There is not a tsb i believe even, just if you take it to Ford the tech now uses whatever fluid Ford states during changes.

    @admin Missing a whole next page still and has reverted back to old title and section. This thread title was changed and it was also moved to build section. Please fix.

    @Envious can you see the next page or not? There was transfer case information along with other information on there.
