Have the Ford garage do it. It's the only way to get the fluid out of the TC..

NO! You can do this yourself including the TC. Follow the "Sticky" for changing your own fluid.

IMO

my only problem with the sticky... it allows the transmission to run w/o any oil in it. your emptying out the trans... i just dont like what happens to a transmissions seals when there at operating temperature and then neglected of oil... i think im going to do a modification to the sticky... for my own... weirdness...

just dont like the idea of running with w/o fluid... even for the 20 seconds it takes.. just like starting your engine when you know theres the oil drain plug in your pocket...

But, this is all in my own opinion.. not trying to make hate and discontent.

Re: Good brand of ATF for the 4R100

If you don't want to do it, fine. But you have no idea of how the seals work or you wouldn't be concerned.

If you run the trans without fluid for 20 seconds you haven't read the procedure. I wrote it and I would NEVER let it run that long after all the fluid is out!

It is NOTHING like running an engine without oil.
