And how much for the perfectly good transmission fluid you waste to put the $35 pan on? Personally, Iíll wait until the fluid needs changing. Then Iíll consider whether I want to replace or modify the pan. Iíll probavl just let the dealer change the fluid though since it is only a once every 6 or 7 year event for me.

"draining" a Super Duty Transmission is like. welll. PI$$ing into the wind. (only wor$e)

Learn your truck and transmission, Find the PROPER FLUSH. (read: entire torque converter and cooler) procedure (and, no, HOT FLUSH isn't (always) a good solution.

Also, ANY "drain". (or FLUSH) without changing the in-pan transmission FILTER is absolutely STUPID!

so: result: No PAN DRAIN needed.

Or, be satisfied with no proper filtration and only 45-65% of the fluid changed

Two schools of thought here. I’m in the school that fluid drain every 30k is better than waiting till 150k when your tranny starts shifting weird.

Have you ever looked in a tranny flush machine? Also, when people start having shift issues what’s the first thing they do??? I bet it’s go to dealer to get a flush. Do you think the tech on Saturday takes the time to clean all the small fine metal shavings in the tranny machine?

Like I said, two schools of thought. Me I’ll do fluid drains every 30k and fluid and filter every 60k.

I have never flushed a transmission, and will not. That is just me, saw too many issues when I was rebuilding transmissions when I was younger. I will pull the pan change the filter and add clean fluid. Then I pop off trans cooler line and start the vehicle and let the trans pump do it thing. I do that 2 or three times and and good to go. Fluid changes will rarely fix a problem if one is there and more times than not can make things worse. Just my opinion

that does not work with a lot of modern transmissions ( starting in 2003 for the Ford ) unless you want to remove a lot more fluid to reduce the mix ratio.

but regardless and say it did work . please explain how the Fords heated flush procedure is different than the old school method of replacing fluid as it comes out of the transmission ?

the Ford flush heats the new fluid so the cooler circuit stays open and has full flow to the coolers , if you do not heat the fluid you get a small percentage of oil running thru the cooler and you will be mixing new coolant into old at a high rate in the pan instead of exchanging the coolant old for new as desired.
I am fine with the DIY guy dropping the pan and doing a few fill and drains if the old fluid is in good shape but for someone who does not DIY and wants to get the transmission serviced I would not scare them away from a proper heated fluid exchange

the most popular "theory" i have seen posted as to why to avoid a flush, is the new fluid and its active detergents/solvents will wash out the grit between the friction surfaces
and cause slippage , so with that theory in place if you neglected to do service intervals you better just leave it since a flush or a pan drop and fill will net the same result ..
.. I would not feel comfortable taking a truck like that on a road trip
