08 F350 tansmission flush cost in Canada???

I have a Job 1 08 F350 with the external tansmission filter.

Just debating on doing the 30,000 mile trans service myself. Changing external filter, dropping pan, cleaning, and changing internal filter.

What are the stealerships charging for this?

I have done a search and see the costs vary from dealer to dealer in the States.......but wanted some info on charges in Canada....specifically Alberta

Thanks.

MGM in Red Deer quoted me $479.56 to do it.......looks like I'll be doing it myself.

Unfortunately dealership service prices are severly over-inflated, heck even an oil change costs an arm and a leg, I had oil change, fuel filter change, transmission check, brake check done at the gm dealer in thee north end of red deer and it was damn near $300 when I went to pay, I just about chit a brick, I can do the oil and fuel change myself for about $90

Same pricing down here in Calgary just shy of 500 clams. Now on the oil change, I usually get mine for free from my dealer. So I save 100 bucks . Have 25,000 miles on her now and and I always take it back for the 6 month service, they even caught a transfer case seal leak before I knew about it and changed it out under warranty. Gotta love good customer service.

I talked to my dealer City ford in Edmonton to do a Transmission service, fuel filter change and a quick inspection he estimated 5-600 ish.

Are you guys talking a trans. flush or just a pan drop and refill with filter change. All the ford dealers seem to not like flushes and only do a pan drop.

They both quoted me "flushes"....but that may change when i go in and talk to them.

I think i will do it myseld and drop the pan clean the magnet...change both filters etc.. If i order the filters at diesel online i think i can do it for about $300erish

just to let you know the ford 5r110 tranny requires a specific fluid especialy if you are worried about warrenty. the only place you can get it is at ford and it retails around12.50 per liter and you need approx 18 liter acording to manual

You bet Mercon LV

or may use Amsoil Synthetic fuel effecient auto trans fluid (ATL) as i get it at dealer cost.

Would be around $350 to do it with Mercon LV at $12.50/ltr....including both filters.
