auto trans fluid change

My 2006 F-350 needs to have the auto trans fluid changed. Does the converter have a drain plug or will I need to take it to a shop and have it pumped and let them change the filter as well.

Most likely the shop if you have a torq shift tranny. Have it flushed, not just "changed". There is a thermostat in this tranny which does not allow for a complete drain unless the fluid is 170 degrees (thermostat will not open otherwise).

Don't delay. My '06 F250 has been at the dealership for 3 weeks now because I refuse to pay $4300 for a remanufactured tranny after 48,000 miles. Service manager says I'm to blame for not having the tranny fluid changed at 30,000 miles at an authorized Ford Dealer. If it wasn't performed by Ford, and I cannot produce paperwork to prove it, well then it's just as good as not having it done.

I'm calling BS on this. So far I've gotten nowhere with Ford. Ford has an interesting approach to customer service. Take your money then spit on you.

i would highly recommend only a drain and filter change not a flush,you do not need to flush these trannys.if you change your fluid at the right times a drain and filter is all you need,a flush can put a tranny down for good.just my thoughts on this and i have done this a long time.make sure the tranny is hot when you do it or have it done.
