To flush or not to flush... that is the question
started posting on here recently trying to diagnose noise in trany on my 99 duratec... turned out to be front pump... which failed on ride to work today, cooked my trany, just ordered new jasper. I inherited this car from an old man, who drove it like an old man, and even with 90k on it looks and runs like it just pulled off the showroom floor. Only thing that bothers me is that when I got the car I tried to treat it to some love... including a trany flush... and "coincidentally" now I need a trany. I have friends that have driven these cars past 200k with NO love and here I am with my cherry ride dropping a trany b4 100k. Upon googling the benefits of trany flush I find a miriad of mechanics that warn against this process. Causes unnatural fluid flows under high pressure. My warning to you... we drive these old rides hoping to save a buck... think twice before 'flushing' anything.
