About to change all fluids
I bought a 2005 F250 CC SB last month with 113,000 miles. I paid an extra $1k on a third party 5 year/100k mile warranty, which I wish I wouldn't have. It only covers up to $3k on the motor, $2k on the tranny, and an unknown amount on the transfer case. I'm also only allowed 1 claim for each of those three parts for the duration of the warranty. Pretty ridiculous I think.
I was told the warranty company is going to send me two bottles of some sort of additive to put in both the motor and transmission within 60 days. Does anybody know what thats for?
Anyways, my point is this. I misread my warranty agreement and it turns out I don't necessarily have to use those two bottles within 60 days, but I do have to have both the motor and transmission fluid changed in that time frame. The catch is I have to bring the truck to a shop. They won't let me do it myself.
Since I have to have this done, I thought I'd have them change every fluid to Amsoil. Besides the motor and transmission, what are all the other fluids in the truck I can have them change?
I'm planning a 3,000 mile round trip in a few months. Is there anything else I should have them look at?
