Tranny Type

Guys, Howdie? My first post on this site!! How do I determine the tranny type (ie: Torqueshift) in my 08' F350 6.4L Turbo Diesel 5-spd Autotrans?

you are correct oregon stroker but, If you look at you VIN sticker inside driver side door there is a code at the bottom right hand part of the sticker that reads TR if it has a B under it then you have the torqshift.

Someone did a nice write up on a drive way tranny flush, but I can't seem to find it. Any one remember the link? Beats taking it to the dealer and taking it in the a** for something you can do yourself.

08 should actually say Mercon LV on the dipstick. That's what I run in my 06. it's backwards compatable with SP in the 5R110 torqshift
