I took my Dodge van to a lube station for a power flush. They charged me $160 saying they used synthetic fluid. The van had 49K miles on it. Six hundred miles after the flush the transmission slipped. I have no proof to say the flush caused its death, it could have been a co-incidence. The first transmission fluid change (not flushed) was done at 30K miles by draining the pan.
Now, I flush my Ford myself at home. I feel much better knowing exactly what was put into the transmission.
It is not difficult at all and it costs me only $45 for the fluid plus about three hours of my labor.
