Anyone know how to and what is required in giving an auto a full flush. Ford want to charge me $330 to do it. Is it alot cheaper to do it my self or should i stick with the guys who know what their doing???

Hahahahaha that's funny, sorry but my experience with Fraud is they don't know what their doing until they get to the cash register!

Take it to a Auto transmission specialist and get a quote.

Normal service is about $110
Service and full flush is about $250-$280

a normal service you can do yourself, but full flush most epople can't due to not having the equipment.
Personally I service my transmission myself with a new filter and drain as much oil and possiable and top up reguarly, that way the oil should always be fairly clean and that.
i'll get a full flush eventually though.

I got mine done yesterday, full service ($150), + replaced end shaft bush (it was completely worn $100), + extra large trans cooler ($300).

Well worth the $, feels like a different car.

How do you manage to flush out 5 litres of oil yourself?

Loosen the rear sump pan bolts and gently pry the rear slightly open with a container underneath to catch the fluid.

That won't give you much fluid at all.

As said above, the flush can be had for 99bucks from the right people, the full service is prolly 250+ parts n stuff, so its more up in the air lol.

yeah i think it needs a full service though. gears are changing slow and it feels like it may be slipping or somethin like that. I'll ring around though to see how much it's gona be. I think after the full service though i'll do a regular fluid chage myself.
