If I'm not mistaken, I believe the complete flush will take 19 quarts! I think the Ford brand (Mercon SP) is what you need, but it doesn't come cheap!

If you are just doing the drain, refill, and external filter recommended in the manual it takes about 8 quarts.

I'd just drop the pan, change both filters, and fill 'er back up. The norm is 8 quarts, but mine takes almost 10 when I do it, and my mom's took almost 11 when I did hers. If you're just changing the fluid, I'd pick up 12...whatever is left over can be kept for the next tranny fluid change. I'm not fully sure about the flush, so I can't give any advice there.

Later,

Did mine last week at 30K miles. It took 8 1/2 quarts to refill. That was dropping and cleaning the pan and changing the external filter and the internal screen assembly. The next one will be an external filter change and flush.
