Nope, I only got your first message saying that you were going to send the attachment later at night. I never got a second email with the attachment.

Yes, I just found it this morning. The biggest issue that I see is that bullets were used and those don't transfer over at all.

Anyway, it's all set and I sent it back to you so that you can post it.

Motorcraft FT 113 filter. Long neck stemmed filter if 4r100 with the 20 bolt pattern.

Clean magnet and drain pan of gunk buildup. Reuse the same, original OEM gasket, not replacement cork.

I paid the dealer $159.00 for the fluid exchange and he called me when it was done. And Ford's service warranty is two years and unlimited miles.

I'd imagine the cost of the ATF alone is about half the cost of paying a shop to do the exchange.

I just wonder what that Service Warranty includes and how does it apply?

When is it determined if it needs to be changed again? 35k or so as the manual suggests?

Is it only replacement "service" if changed within 2 years, not the ATF?

I agree that the ATF will run around 60 bucks with 100 in labor. If they'll do it every 35k for about 60 bucks within 2 yrs, then not a bad deal.

The service interval on my 2004 Expy is 30K, the 2005 jumped to 60K so I have it done every 45K knowing that nothing has changed with the equipment in one year.

Current transmissions are running LV fluid which is a lifetime fluid or 150K, which ever comes first. So realistically, $160.00 for a trans service every 100K -150 isn't a bad deal.
