    Default Falcon 5 Speed Auto Service

    I have a well kept 2009 XR6 Falcon 5 speed auto with 78,000 Klm on it.

    I am thinking the transmission should have a service ( new Mercon 5 ).

    Been to two local ( SW Sydney ) automatic transmission specialist. One quote $480 the other $250.

    The cheaper one, surely they would use the correct Mercon 5 for this price . I read some time back on this forum that some transmission specialists are using Dexron III in these.

    Should I just buy some of the commercial Castrol Mercon 5 and provide it for the service ?

    Has any member had any recent experience in servicing Falcon 5 speed autos. ?

    Appreciate any comment / feedback.



    Cheers All
