I'm gonna be changing the tranny fluid and filter soon, but having problems figuring out what filter it takes. There's two types for the 6r60 trans. One is a flat filter and other one has a pickup tube. My EB is a 4x4. Not sure if it's 6L2Z-7A098-AA or 7L1Z-7A098-A filter.

Thanks.

Thanks for the reply. Yours is a 4x4 correct?

The filter with the extension tube is for a trans pan with a sump. If you have a "flat" bottom pan that the filter must be flat.

Think that the 6R80 trans has the "deep" pan.

Ok thanks. After researching, I have the shallow pan. One last question, we're you able to reuse the gasket?

Yes, the gasket is reusable as long as you don't tear it. Correct Motorcraft # is FT-160 for the filter.
Correct fluid is Mercon SP. You will need about 8 qts.

And, enjoy the mercon bath. Just kidding. See PL's thread, Use a big drop sheet and an oversize drain pan.
