Re: Transmission service vs. flush?
Just as a side note to you guys
We recently dropped the pan to do a minor fluid/filter change on Dad's EBII Wagon. This thing is 218 000ks old, still on original box. When we pulled the pan off we noticed a crap load of what looked to be a brass/copper metal sitting in the pan. Now, I have heard of some metal being there and it being ok, but this looked pretty dodgy (notice transmission still behaved normally). Seeing as though the car was being driven from here in Brisbane to albury, we thought it best to ring my unlce (service manager at a Ford dealer) who told us that brass coloured stuff is the factory tranny cooler in the radiator falling apart. If it starts to get all clumpy in the box its a pretty bad situation.....so we went and bought a external tranny cooler at 4 in the arvo, used some creative thinking to get it installed (threads for fittings in the kit didnt match the ford radiator fittings etc) and had it back together by 7pm. The wagon then left at 10.30pm for Albury.
No phone calls yet so im assuming the cars still going strong lol
Just something to think about.
