Fords New Six-Speed 6R140

I was reading some info last night @ work... About this transmission...Sounds like Ford is heading in the right direction with this Unit... Now I read one section that really had me squinting to make sure I read it correctly...

Here It is and I quote---->"The High-Capacity Transmission filter extends automatic transmission fluid change intervals to 150,000 miles"

Is this Correct? What type of Trans Fluid can withstand that amount of miles? Just a simple H/C filter can't be the only answer....Granted I have know idea how big Fords trans cooler is on these new trucks... But it must be a very efficient one...

well most newer transmissions are life time fill from the factory...technically a good syn fluid should not deteriorate at all, as long as its filtered properly and not overheated.
CCLB with some stuff done .....

Re: Fords New Six-Speed 6R140

This is true. The technology has been there for a while with both fluids and filters, however no one wanted longer intervals as that cuts into the profit of selling the fluids and filters more frequently.
