Heated Transmission Fluid Flush

My 2010 SuperDuty has the TorqShift 5R110W trans that has the internal temp regulator that limits the external flow to the cooler until the fluid reaches ~160° so normal flush machines won't work. Ford states that you need the heated fluid flush machine in order to remove all the old fluid. I have been calling dealers in my area and no one has one of these heated trans flushers. Does anyone know of any area shops who do the heated fluid flushes?

Do some research and you will see that the Super Duty transmissions have thermostats so normal flush machines won't remove all the old fluid.

He's right Jr. Craig, I just drop the pan and replace what I took out..... Just do it every 30,000 miles instead of once every 100,000. Keeps it nice an clean. Have you checked out the Super Duty forum? Lots are doing it this way.

I talked to my trans guy, he stated that the trans is at operating temp when the transfer start, so you are pulling the trans fluid out it is at operating temp. He also stated that he heats the new oil that goes back in. Maybe not the designed method, but it works.

And as Bud stated, you still have to drop the pan and change the filter.

Actually, I DON'T drop the pan...it has a drain plug. The filter is located up under the front bumper - Passenger side. Yes, there is a filter inside the tranny pan but it so coarse that it only filters out things like boulders-refrigerators etc.

Hi Charlie...how's things going?

I'm sorry they left out the drain plug for the converter..... one of Ford's "better" ideas. Someone thought that all the dealers would spring for that novel fluid heater!! Dealers are cheaper than the manufacturers!

On my 2010 Super Duty, Ford has the new improved filter in the pan and no longer has the external toilet paper filter. I bought the new filter from Ford and will drop the pan.
