You will need a drum pump and know also which hole to stick it in on the valvebody,then you just keep pumping clean oil through the convertor till it comes out clean, then do the regular service.
200-250 for a full flush is reasonable from a trans specialist. id never leave my car at ford.
I got mine flushed at alfred cove automatics, pretty sure it was 220. but that was a while ago. they are pretty good.

I had my EB flushed some years ago, by a trans specialist, and cost $300. They said the cost depended on how much oil they have to flush through to get it clean.

if the old fluid is nasty looking you'd need about 15 litres to flush the auto, converter and cooler properly. and most places charge about $10 a litre. and then there is the service kit (sump gasket, filter and o-ring) and then labour

It's pretty simple.

1:Do a pan change first. and fill the box back up.
2:then remove the cooling fan from the radiator.
3: undo both trans cooler lines from the rad.
4: connect drum pump to the return line and extend the other line to a 20L container.
5: start engine
6: pump new fluid through the return line at the same rate that it's being pumped out.
7:when the waste fluid is clean turn the engine off and reconnect every thing. ( may use between 15-25L depending how bad your fluid is.)
8: top box up to correct cold level and drive the car to warm the fluid.
9: check level and correct if needed.

I find running it through the gears helps get more crappy oil out.....make it go through the clutches, and servo's, as well as the valve body and solenoids.

I will be doing this myself over christmas, have got 20L of Nulon TQ95 and the service kit. Just a thought on point #6 could you connect a pipe into the bottom of the 20L drum connect it to the return line and let the auto pump it through by itself until the oil runs clean.

The way I do it, and have done for years, is to put the car up on all 4 jack stands. Level.
Remove the top auto trans oil cooler pipe, the oil will come out the radiator end.
I have a pipe that screws into the radiator. Start engine, trans in Park...run till bubbles start to come out.
Remove pan, and replace filter, don't forget the little seal up where the filter goes too. Clean the pan, and refit.
Reconnect trans pipe, fill auto ( filler hole on EF2 to BA ), till it comes out ( about 2.5 to 3 lts ).
Start engine, put trans into Low ( 1st ), wait till the wheels spin, then rev engine to about 2,500 rpm, leave it at that for about 30 seconds, shift to 2nd, 30 secs, 3rd 30secs, 4th 30 secs, neutral and apply brake, shift to Reverse, 30 seconds, then repeat for about 3 more goes.
Then remove the cooler pipe, and pump out again.
Repeat this procedure about 3 times.
This way, the new oil goes through everything in the tranny.
Do this every 20,000kms or 2 yrs.
