30K service woes!

Finally hit the 30K on my 08' and took it in for service. Had the oil, fuel filters and tranny flushed and new filter as well. Not cheaply either. Got it home and now I'm leaking tranny oil all over the place. Looks as if it's coming from the cooler from a hose. This really pisses me off! So, going to have to get it back to the dealer and see what the lazy tech for got to do.

That is the reason I do all my maintenance work myself, I feel I care about my truck more than anyone else, plus the price you paid to have the service done is way higher then I'm willing to pay.

How much did they charge you for the transmission flush and filter change?

Well put, that's exactly why I'm learning and doing as much as I can on this truck. $160 for an oil change is a pretty penny for something I can do myself for half that price.

$160 for a transmission flush and filter change?

By the way anyone know what fluid goes in a 5spd torqshift 5R110W transmission?

Amy I okay with just doing a filter and fluid change? I know the dealer will flush and replace the full 14 quart capacity compared to the 7.5 that I would replace with a drain and refill

I am interested in this. Subscribed! I'm at 140k and trying to decide what to do to my tranny, if anything.

I forked out 5 bones for the service. Most important one to do for me was the tranny flush and filter. I am going to start doing my own oil and fuel filters from now on. At least if I forget to tighten a plug up I just have myself to blame. I tend to take a little more pride in what I'm doing when it's my own stuff, unlike these techs that do one rig after another.

I managed to get a free oil change at the dealership after they overfilled my coolant after an upper rad hose leak resulting in a second trip. Filled out the survey they sent me and wrote my experience in the comments area and now I have a file number with Ford Canada. Haven't called them yet. Albeit, it took months for them to call me in regards to my less than stellar service experience.

In the tech's defense, he or she is human and makes mistakes. Probably the only one that week or month they've made and it was you. I struggle with telling myself that when I'm in your shoes but I've forgot to tighten my lug nuts and caught it after half of them were long gone...

I do realize the fact, I have made a few mistakes, well a couple anyway
It's just a pain to make arrangements to get it back in the shop.
