4R70W - Can I use Oreilly global multi vehicle transmission fluid

Please check this link https://www.oreillyauto.com/detail/b...lobal1/4601145

Wondering if I can use this fluid in my 2000 F150 automatic xl 8 cyl. it has 4r70w transmission...

I can get 6 quarts for only 8$ ...and I believe I will need only 6 quarts because I only removed transmission pan to replace reverse servo and pistons+springs...I did not completely rebuild so there should be existing fluid in there already...

So that leads to another question..is it ok if I mix the existing fluid ( I dont know brand but I believe its original fluid ) with this oreilly brand?

I may change it sooner than other fluid

From what's legible on the front label, the answer is "no". The rear label is illegible and the description on their web page is useless.

You need a fluid that is compatible with "Mercon V". That one is purporting to be compatible with "SP/LV" which is NOT compatible with the "V" requirements.

Why don't you drain the torque converter and put all new fluid in? A 2000 should have a drain plug.

Mixing different brands of Mercon V should be fine.

Thanks...I did not use that fluid...I used castrol import multi vehicle - 4 quarts (because it said its compatible with ford mercon V requirements and I used 6 quarts of Valvoline mercone V atf ...you may wonder why did I use castrol multi vehicle import ...because I already had those in my garage for long time so just made use of it instead buying more of valvoline
