It referring to TYPE FA?

Valvoline Type FA is a high-quality transmission fluid specifically engineered to protect and prolong the life of automatic transmissions. It is designed for use where Ford specifications M2C33-F, M2C33-G and Ford Type F fluids are recommended."

Provides excellent resistance against clutch slippage for extended transmission life.

Provides excellent resistance to fluid oxidation/breakdown at high temperatures.

Approved for 1980 and earlier Ford, Lincoln and Mercury vehicles.

Approved for use in Mazda, Saab, Toyota, Volvo and other Japanese and European vehicles requiring a Type F fluid.

TYPE FA seems to be an aftermarket fluid designation only. There is no reference to the description in FORD literature and/or packaging. The above is VALVOLINE's statement, not FORD's.

If a person cannot ask a question and get a truthful and knowledgeable answer, this only becomes a bull-sh!at session.

BTW - You need to read the history of MERCON.

Aftermarket Automatic Transmission Fluids -

For over 70 years, the oil aftermarket has produced both licensed, and non-licensed, formulations of automatic transmission fluid. Today, aftermarket fluids asserted by their manufacturers to be compatible for use in General Motors automatic transmissions continue to be sold under names such as Dexron/Mercon, Multi-Purpose, and Multi-Vehicle fluids.

Non-licensed fluid is typically less expensive, these fluids are not regulated or endorsed by Ford for use in their transmissions. Vehicle manufacturer approved and licensed fluids must have the license number printed on the product information label of the container or on the container housing. Non-Licensed fluids do not show a license number. Make sure the fluid to be installed into a transmission matches the recommended fluid in the specifications section of the vehicle's owner's manual.

This has been a lost exercise.
