    Drained and filled my wife's 1994 Honda Civic, while also performing an axle replacement. It was locally available, fulfilled the DEXTRON-II transmission fluid specification in the Honda service manual, and looks like cherry juice - like everything else. I haven't observed (or expected) any noticeable change in performance, but a Honda Civic is hardly a hot-rod. This product is for older cars, so as long as you keep that in mind, you're set.

    Overall, works well for a basic fluid replacement.

                            I'm glad to assist, Ted! Ford has changed their recommendation for many vehicles that were using Mercon fluid. The recommendation for your 2000 Ford F-150 XLT 4.2L V6 2WD is Mercon V ATF (Advance Auto Parts Part No. A102) for your power steering. If your owner's manual indicates Mercon and you prefer to continue using Mercon over Mercon V, This Advance Auto parts Dexron III/Mercon ATF (Part No. A100) will work for your application.
