Best place to look for vehicle fluid specs. is at www.amsoil.com. Click on their "online application guide", follow through with your make-year-model. Of course they will recommend their product, which is excellent, but I have found that that year and range of Mazda 626's require "Dexron II". Use a "synthetic" version when possible and you will run cooler and your tranny will hold up better!

A 5 speed (Mazda built) Manual transmission requires Mercon or Dextron II automatic trans fluid. A 4 speed requires 80w-90 gear lube.
The AW 4 automatic transmission uses Dextron 2 transmission fluid.
FORD recommended Mercon-ATF for the Mazda 5-speed manual OD transmission in the 1992 Ranger XLT. 90 weight gear lube is probably way too heavy for this type of smaller transmission.
Dextron IIE or III
Use Mazda ATF M-V or Dexron III. Either one is acceptable.
On the 1995 Mazda 626 v6 engine you will find the proper oil listed on the transmission dip stick. Do not overfill
