What oil in Transfer Case ???

I just saw a video that was warning against using Mercon V in the transfer case ~ what's the story ~ is that BS or ???

What about using it in the Tranny ???



Thanks

It's true. What year truck and what transmission ?
Ford now says Mercon LV is good for transfer cases. Transmission depends on which one you have.

XL12 is no longer made. Ford says to use Mercon LV instead. Not sure if that applies to your transfer case. I know it does on the transfer cases mated to the 5r110 and 6r140
