buy the "toilet paper" filter from the dealership along with the tranny fluid. USE ONLY MOTORCRAFT SP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! this filter is on the inside of the passenger side framerail behind the right front tire in a small canister. again, use only motocraft sp.

nope. on the 5r110, do not change the internal. it is really only a screen. do not mix fluids or put in anything other than ford sp. it will kill the tranny.

you can change the fluid in the tranny by draining it. it won't change all of it because some fluid is in the convertor.

If you drain the pan add back 7.5 qts, if you replace the small filter use a small amount to prime the new filter. I bought a case of SP for $50 from my dealer.

Does anyone have a write up or pictures in regards to changing the tranny fluid. I think that would help many decide to do this themselves rather than pay money at the dealership for this service.

Here's a good procedure for a DIY transmisison fluid change:

Drain old fluid (about 8 qts will come out) and replace the external filter. Add new fluid until full and then drive around to get everything up to temp. Drain old fluid again and refill with new fluid until full.

As mentioned above, you'll only get about 7.5-8 qts out by draining and the transmisison holds about 15 qts.

Maybe a little less effective than using a machine to flush the transmission out, but considerably less expensive and still a great way of replacing your fluid.

Forgot to add that you don't need to mess with the filter in the transmission pan. It really is more a screen and doesn't need to be replaced.
