2005 Mercury Mariner Transmission

I am getting ready to change the Tranny fluid in my 2005 Mercury Mariner. I have heard conflicting reports. Can anyone comment on what type of transmission filter is present? I have heard the filter is internal and can only be replace with a rebuild.

Thanks in advance.

Re: 2005 Mercury Mariner Transmission

Hmmm. I can't find a specific filter for either the 2.3 or 3.0 engine. I can't say if I've ever heard of a filter being 'internal'. I know Ford is starting to offer 'lifetime' filters on their newer vehicles, from the air filter and in a few years...probly an oil filter!

Still, if no one else here can give you a solid answer you can always contact TWO dealerships close to you. If they both give you the same answer then at least you'll be certain as to the answer.

Amsoil in all vehicles!

Re: 2005 Mercury Mariner Transmission

I saw the mention of internal filter on Edmunds forum and actually saw a filter part for the Mariner that says "internal filter, transmission rebuild is required". The reason for my confusion is that other online parts stores list a filter but there is no mention of internal. I will call my local dealer and inquire....btw...I have Amsoil transmission fluid ready to to into the Mariner!!

I'm seeing the same thing...

I think there might also be a inline magnetic transmission filter on your vehicle.
