I called my local dealerships I’m in Modesto ca, they all will do it for a charge of 350$ but when I ask them the procedure they don’t say anything about the machine, their procedure is to just drop the pan, guess I’ll just have to do it myself, to double check the fluid is “motorcraft mercon v”Many years ago, it was about $200. It may be double that now. The correct fluid is not cheap.
Watch them do it, or go somewhere that you trust.
If you have high miles and never done this before don't do it or you'll be buying a new transmission soon. I only drop the pan and change filter and fluid in those cases or you lose to much friction material and new oil is too slippery, every time I've done a flush it kills the transmission, I've only done it twice cause I learn fast.Just wondering what a dealership should charge me to flush my fluid/change filter, and if there’s any way I can tell they actually flushed the whole system ?
Oh I guess I'm not really sure there, but probably around double the recommend milage interval when your supposed to service it, the two I've had fail with a full flush were both over 120k.That has been my experience as well with high mileage trannies. My question SultanGris is what do you consider high mileage?
