what fluid do i use for my power syeering on 2003 Lincoln LS

is it true that i use transmission fluid for my power syeering

Asked by for the 2003 Lincoln LS
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.

Mercon fluid is called for (it is a transmission fluid).
