HEATED trans flush in Detroit/Downriver area?

Read a bunch from Ford Diesel Techs saying a heated trans flush is the only way to go since my trans has a 170* t'stat in it. Called 3 Ford Dealerships & you'd think I was asking for an "Outer Space tune-up.". Does anyone have any suggestions for me. Trying to take good care of this fine running machine. Thank you.

I've never seen a "heated" trans flush machine. I did a google search and didn't find anything, so IDK. I bought a T-Tec 500 back a few years ago and it was one of the beast out there at the time. I have used it on transmissions with the by pass, to use it you have to get the trans up to temp so the fluid is going through the cooler, you will get 6-10 quarts flushed before it cools down and stops flowing, then you need to get it back up to temp and finish the flush. IDK of any other way to do it.

Thanks for info. They must have one because others have mentioned it. I sure would like to be able to have mine flushed that way.

For me I prefer drain whole and new filter instead flush.

Most flush cases I heard ruin transmission later.

Well did anybody find a heated transmission flush machine? I have done a couple Goodle searches and couldn't find one. None of the top flush machine manufactures make one. So IDK??
