Default Transmission Fluid Change.

My dad has to get the transmission fluid changed on the Jeep because water got into it. Does anyone know how much changing the trans fluid usually is? My dad took it to one shop and said it was going to be $210. To me that sounds to much. But then I dont know alot of things about mechanics and cars and whatnot. Any input would be very helpful. Thanks

He needs to get a total flush not just fluid and filter change. A flush runs from 150 and up.

It's actually very simple to do. Almost all trannies have a vent line in the top of the Transmission, get it good and hot and drive into a mudpuddle and submerse and bingo bango. Water in the tranny

would that cause one to slip a little bit when changing from 2nd to 3rd or 3rd to 4th?

Yeah, he brought it by the house for me to look at yesterday. There is a story behind it I'll let him share, just ribbing him a little.

I got a quote for my Ram 1500 from AmeriLube on Beverly and it was $189. That include both filters and a full flush including the torque converter. Manual says it needs done every 100K. Got my compnay car (Ford Fusion) done at dealership and it was $289.

Yes that would cause it to slip while shifting from 2 to 3 to 4th. The story is I took my dads jeep while he was outta town down the street to the swamp. bogged it. got water in the trans fluid and now he has to get it changed. Just wondering if it was a unreasonable price. and i was just told that the $210 would include the flush too. So i guess its not that bad. Thanks for the replies. This is deffinalty the one story I will tell my kids to about my teen age years. I can hear it now. "Back when I was sixteen, I took your grandpas Jeep when he was outta town one weekend and broke the thing....." yup. mind as well write the story down now. But again. thanks for all the replies. You guys are great.

It depends on what all they do, a complete flush and a tranny filter change? I had mine done at the Big 10 in GB which is'nt there now, for 100 bucks..But that was just a complete flush no filter change..

Yes. but usually they don't pull the pan and change the filter with a flush.

would specify that you DO want the filter changed.

It gets changed not flushed in my truck every 30K mi.

Fords still have the drain plug in the torque converter. The cooler and lines get blown out.

It takes 14qts +the filter.
