ATF-Type F is specifically designed for use in automatic transmissions in passenger cars and light trucks manufactured by Ford Motor Company prior to 1977, and in many 1977-1981 models. It is formulated to provide the proper frictional characteristics for positive shifting with little or no slippage. It has excellent oxidation resistance and thermal stability at high temperatures to minimize sludge and varnish formation, and provide long service life. It provides good wear protection, protects against rust and corrosion, and has good foam resistance. It also has good low-temperature properties for easier shifting in cold weather.
ATF-Type F is recommended for service fill in all automatic transmissions that require a fluid meeting the requirements of Ford Specification ESW-M2C33-F. It also is recommended for use in many Borg-Warner automatic transmissions and older Ford power steering units, as well as in the hydrostatic drive systems and hydraulic systems of certain farm equipment. ATF-Type F is not recommended for use in transmissions that require any other type of automatic transmission fluid besides Type F.
ATF-Type F meets or exceeds the requirements of Ford ESW-M2C33-F (obsolete)
