2003 Lincoln LS Question: what fluid do i use for my power syeering
Answer #1patrick mannion from Greg Solow's Engine Room, April 30, 2011, 18:29Master
Mercon fluid is called for (it is a transmission fluid).

To clarify one bit of Patrick's response -- the fluid is called Mercon V (or "5"), as "Mercon" fluid was discontinued by Ford. Further, all Ford power steering systems 1998 and newer require Mercon V and not basic Mercon fluid.
A bit nit-picky, but could be important.
