Transmission service ??

I called a few places about getting a transmission service for my 03 F-250. A few said that they would "blow the lines out with pressure" and some said that they would not. Whats the best thing to have done here?? Does it hurt or help to blow the lines out.

Also, what all should I expect them to do for the transmission service.

Re: Transmission service ??

I just follow Brian's from BTS's advice..drain the pan every 15k or so install filter and fill it up.

We only carry the BEST parts and never compromise just to get a sale.

When I was at his place, they did that. After it was done, they overfilled the trans by 4 quarts, run it till 4 quarts came out and shut down. Repeat. Checked levels and that was that. It would get as much fluid out without a teardown.

growing up my family owned one of the largest transmission shops around, we would send out post cards at the one year mark asking people to schedule to come in and have the transmission inspected. Anything over 10k we would just dump the pan and replace the filter, and that was all he reccomended to do when servicing them, but at 15k for non inspection purposes
