I have been very pro-active on the transmission fluid myself. But I take truck to Ford and let them hot flush it. I also upgraded to the 2008 pan and filter assembly.
I need to set up my Edge CS2 monitor to see the transmission gears that its in. Because I can feel my transmission shift through all 6 gears regardless of being told they only use 5 gears in the transmission. I will say that the 65 HP Tow Tune that PHP wrote up for my truck is as good as it gets. They spread out the shift points where it scoots down the road as if it was on the 33" tires the truck came with.
The hot flush is $249.00 but its pretty relative as far as cost goes because it beats the hell out of $5,000.00 for a new transmission. Plus I never liked the fact there was always oil in the torque converter and cooler lines that was dirty and beat down and still in my transmission for God knows how much longer. I've had people tell me I'm going to lunch the transmission by doing the hot flushes by knocking pixie dust loose and it was going to take out the transmission.
Not a concern of any kind, now if you have 200,000 miles on a transmission and its never been serviced you may be heading for trouble. But I have my doubts there too because its all pushed right out of the transmission and not into the pan.
