    The repair manual should tell what it takes. It will tell you the drain and refill procedure too.

    Here select the Owners Guide link on the left side of the screen. Then year and model. Download a copy of the owners manual from there.

    If you don't want to do this, it says the following.

    5-Speed Overdrive Trans (ZF- S5-47) (Mazda-R2): Motorcraft - MERCON Auto Trans Fluid, XT-2-QDX, MERCON

    5-Speed Overdrive Trans 7.3L DI Diesel (ZF- S5-47): Motorcraft Synthetic - MERCON, E6AZ-19582-B, ESR-M2C163-A2
