What is the proper type of tranmission fluid do i need for a 99 ranger with a 3.0 AUTO. Blew a line last night and need to add a little fluid. Did a search and the O Rillys site said Type F and the Advance auto came up as DexIII/mercon . Now which one is it?
Thanks

Mercon. Type F hasn't been used for decades.

Mercon V only, not regular Mercon. It probably says it right on the dipstick; my truck does.
