So, I have been hunting around on the forums, and every thread I can find about trans fluid is for the V6 MTX, but I have the 2.0 with the manual in my 1999 Cougar. Does everyone still suggest Royal Purple Syncromax? The manual says ATF+ with 2% friction modifier. Any thoughts on this? It's getting tougher to put into 1st Gear, and actually tends to grind a bit going into 2nd when it's cold so I would guess it's more of a fluid issue.
