Transmission Service Question
I have a 2002 F250, and I just had a shop do a transmission flush on my truck this weekend. Total cost was about $120, and I think they just used standard tranny fluid, and I think added in some stuff called Lube Guard.
So I was talking to a co-worker who has a stock 2004 Powerstroke. I was talking to him about a tranny service and he was telling me his service is like $250 because his takes "special fluid and additives". He is basically saying his requires it, not that he just runs the expensive fluid.
I thought that my tranny and his were supposed to be pretty similar, but I could be wrong. So my question is, did my transmission not get sufficient service or is somebody feeding him a line of bull and really overcharging him?
