98 Ford Contour Car fluids, what to use?

Hello,

Does anyone know what is the best fluid to use for the engine coolant reservoir, automatic transaxle , and Air conditiong for a 98 Ford Contour ?

I'm pretty sure the A/C uses R32, and I am planning on recharging it if that is the case.

The engine coolant, does that have to be mixed, or does it come premixed in the container?

thanks!

A/C take R-134 in the system.

Coolant would be a 50/50 mix of green coolant and water, or buy the more expensive pre-mixed coolant if you are lazy.

As far as the trans goes, I would pull the dipstick out and see if it tells you, or look in the owner's manual. It could be Dextron/Mercon or Mercon 5
