I just had this done at my dealership last week. $169 + tax. I opted to change both filters also, so that bumped it up a bit. Good luck.

My local Ford dealership quoted me today $239.95 which included the back flush, toilet paper filter, etc. And didn't include the disposal and tax. OUCH! And when I called another stealership in the area, they quoted me "close to $300" (that's a literal quote). Double OUCH! For that price, I hope it includes some cuddling afterwards!!!

These prices are NUTS! This is why I do the regular (about every 10-15k miles) partial dump and fill which gets out 8 or 9 quarts of fluid and a new filter.

I figure that at least $100 of that is probably the cost of fluid. They use more than 8 or 9 quarts when they flush. Not sure what brand you are using, but I know Amsoil fluid is like $10 per quart...

I dream of a better tomorrow, where chickens can cross the road and not be questioned about their motives.

Transmission flushes do nothing but waste massive amounts of good fluid. droping the pan and changing that fluid every 30k is more then sufficiant.

Plus you can do it yourself and save even more money.

I do most work myself, but I got the truck with 140k miles, I want to make sure I know what fluids are in it and everything is good. I think the initial flush would be a good idea. I may have to bite the bullet on this one.

The Ford SP fluid is 10.00 per quart and a torqshift holds 18 quarts so the 200.00 price isn't that too far out there.We use the SP or BG full synthetic here which is a little cheaper.Just to give u an idea.
