E40D Transmission Oil

My Ford E4OD transmission calls for XT-2-QDX Fluid. I have never heard of this fluid. Anybody know if it is available at Wall Mart?

The E4OD transmission takes Mercon V (5).
This is updated from the manuals that came with your unit by Ford TSB's.

+1. The original fluid was Mercon III. Quite a while ago Ford released an update to use Mercon V. It is either fully synthetic or a semi syn. However im pretty sure it is full. It is best to drain out all the fluid and exchange with fresh Merc V. The 4R100 transmissions also came with a pan drain plug. You could also update your sump to this new pan. However I don't remember if the fluid filter was changed with this pan however the 4R100 filter should work in the E4OD as the pumps are of similar design.

Thanks for your reply. I checked my Chassis manual and it seems that what I was reading is the Oil Spec. I would imagine that Mercon V is the name of the oil.
My 1997 has only 30000 miles total on it. But there are a few years against it and I thought I should change out the oil.

MERCON V is the right fluid. You can buy MERCON V as conventional, blend, or full synthetic.

I just ordered 20 qts of MotorCraft Mercon V from O'reilly's yesterday. Ready to do a flush/refill. Should be there today. $6.49/qt. Walmart did not have it here.

I like synthetics for transmissions that work hard. Mobil 1 synthetic is my favorite. A name brand non-synthetic will also work fine.
