2005 6.0 tranny filter

I am going to be servicing my auto trans on my '05 F350.

What is my tranny filter going to run me thru NAPA or the dealership including the tranny oil?

The one in the pan is really for catastrophic failure. The one on the frame up front is the important one. The filter is around 30 dollars. The fluid roughly 5 dollars a quart.

Re: 2005 6.0 tranny filter

I just got to OEM filters I think it was like around $40 a piece at the stealership. They look like a roll of toilet paper for a smurf and I wanna think I used ~8-10 quarts to get it back to the fill line on the stick?

So doesnt the service recommendation call for the toilet roll filter and the one in the pan to be changed out at 60k?

Oddly Enough...

The TorqShift automatic
transmission is equipped with a
serviceable external fluid filter
mounted on the frame rail. Refer to
the Scheduled Maintenance Guide
for service intervals.
To replace the transmission filter:
1. Shut off the engine.
2. Unscrew filter housing.
3. Replace filter with a new authorized Motorcraft filter element. Refer to
the Motorcraft part numbers chart in this chapter.
4. Reinstall housing and check transmission fluid level using procedure in
this section.

30k miles...
Change automatic transmission fluid on vehicles
equipped with the Torqshift and 4R100
transmissions. Replace the remote filter element
on the vehicles equipped with the Torqshift
transmission. Inspect automatic
transmission/transaxle fluid level on all other
vehicles, if equipped with dipstick. Consult your
dealer for your particular requirements.

60k miles...
Change automatic transmission fluid on vehicles
equipped with the Torqshift and 4R100
transmissions. Replace the remote filter element
on the vehicles equipped with the Torqshift
transmission. Inspect automatic
transmission/transaxle fluid level on all other
vehicles, if equipped with dipstick. Consult your
dealer for your particular requirements.

Right out of the 4th printed maintenance schedule for your truck.

For those of you that don't know Doug, that would be a "no."

Re: 2005 6.0 tranny filter

Just give it a quick zap with an air impact wrench and it comes right off. Have not broken any as of now. I got tired of bending the mounting brackets.

Re: 2005 6.0 tranny filter

An FYI, did the internal and external tranny filter, both gas filters too.

Dropping the pan was a piece of cake, just cleaned it and re-installed the internal, simple easy and relatively cheap. External was equally as easy just slightly quicker.

Did find some crud in the bottom of the fuel cell when I removed the top side fuel filter, took the shop vac and sucked it dry and clean, and I did find they prior owner DIDNT use an MotorCraft filter, whether or not the height/width is any different I dont know, maybe the crud by-passed the afternarket one, who knows.

The hardest one was the frame rail filter, and it wasnt that bad, just made my sweater smell like diesel. By far cheaper doing it myself than having the stealership rob me.
