2000 Ex transmission fluid change?

well im slowly getting my V10 EX back up to speed. i have only had it 2 months and i bought it with 144k miles.

next on my list is the transmission. dealer suggested NOT to flush it due to the miles and age. didnt want to blow any seals in it. they recommeded what they call a full service. it includes pulling the pan and changing the filter and refilling. they want $180 for this.

now in my past days, i have done this to my older S10 blazers and if i remember right, only like 5qts come out of the pan. so if this is still true, then i but there is only like $50 in parts in this type of service. is this true? can i really save that much and do it myself? i dont mind and have the time and know how. this is my first big 3/4ton and didnt know if they were that different.

thanks in advance!!!

I think the EX takes a whole lot more than 5 qts of tranny fluid. Check the manual for capacity. Isn't a filter and fluid change almost the same as a flush except not all the fluid would be exchanged (leftovers in torque converter)?

Way too expensive.

A proper fluid change won't harm your seals.

Here's Mark Kovalsky's step-by-step procedure for changing your trans fluid.

if you take it to aamco they will do the pan drop and filter change then hook the machine up to it and replace all the fluid in the tc as well for like 165 bones......

Well I don't trust our local aamco from past vehicles they worked on for me. I guess I'm gonna do it myself. My manual says I have a tc drain plug so I will look first. Now how much fluid will I need if I remove pan and drain tc? Also what and where to buy ATF? Dealer wants $4.75/qt of motorcraft mercon.

You want Merc V, not Merc, and it'll cost you a lot more than $1.95.

Any auto parts store will carry it. Napa, Karagens, Autozone, etc.
