Transmission Service Questions

I have a 2006 Ford F250 PSD with an automatic trans that is due for its tranny service. Called the local dealer and they quoted me a price of $189.00 for a reverse flush and fill with new fluid. I asked if they replace any filters and they said no, they do not need replacing. Is this correct? My truck has 98,000 miles.

Thanks!

What a bummer! How much did they charge you for that level of service?

Of course the filters should be changed, pan should be dropped and mag cleaned of metal shavings/particles. also not sure what a "reverse flush" is, you'd be better off to buy the filters and about 8 qts of sp ot lv, and doing it yourself.

I think what they might mean by the term reverse flush it a fluid exchange through the dip stick tube, all machines I have seen have a pan removal function built in, so no reason to be lazy and not change the filters

heck ya, do it yourself!!
make sure to look to see if your truck has a drain plug on the converter, I believe all the fords do. That will get even closer to a 100% fluid replacement.

242.47 for everything they had to use around an extra 5 quartz doing the pressure testing...Im going to buy a new tranny cooler and bypass the one in the radiator....Oh there is no plug in the torque converter that would have to be removed for a 100% fluid replacement...But I think that is really unnecessary!

Thanks everyone for their help and advice. I think that I will find someone who will drop the pan and replace the filter along with the fluid change.

the more important filter to change it the bypass filter on the frame. I don't know why but the dealers seem pretty "dumb" when you ask them about it. When I asked what the dealer near me charged to do the flush they said $189. I aksed if that included filter and they said it didn't need to be changed. True for the in pan filter, but not for the frame mounted filter, thats every 30K. and when I changed mine it was pretty dirty
