Dude you wanna change that. Whoever said that changing the fluid causes problems is an idiot. Changing it can cause problems if youve got 100K+ miles on the same fluid but yours won't have that problem, unless you run the living piss out of that truck. It should state in the manual at what interval the fluid should be changed.

52k isn't really that big a deal. Just go ahead and change it and the front filter. You might want to go ahead and pick up a pan filter and change it if for nothing more than to inspect the magnet for excessive metal shavings. Mine had almost 60k on it the first time I changed it simply because I was unaware of the 30k interval, and it looked perfect except for the totally black cartridge filter.

ill probly have ford do it in the next 5 to 10,000 miles i thought it might help lower the trans temp and make it shift a little smoother.

Why wait another 5 to 10K? Thats asking for trouble putting something like that off for that long.

the reason why I said don't do it your self is because the flush replaces all of the fluid. Doing it yourself does not replace all the fluid. No its not hard at all.

The reason why i Said twice is because of my comparison to what the fluid would be in my truck, Fine.... I hate fine. I want my truck to last for ever.

Why couldn't you get all the fluid out? I've done it before. Disconnect the return line from the cooler and run it into a bucket. And keep filling the pan until you've put enough in that all the old is out. This is of course after you drop the pan and change the filter and inspect the magnet.
