I first want to say thanks to all of you great people out there for helping me out the last time I popped by the forum to ask for assistance.
I would like to ask a very easy to answer question...well hopefully easy to answer lol.
In a 2005 Mercury Montego Luxury (FWD), is it practical for the the transmission fluid (all 12 quarts) be exchanged, as well as a NEW transmission fluid filter installed?
This might sound very obvious, so please excuse my idiocy when it comes to cars - I unfortunately don't have much experience in this area.
The reason I ask was because I was at the dealership, and when I asked for the transmission fluid flush/exchange (full 12 quart) + a tranny filter replacement, they said it would be no problem. 2 hours later the boys from ford called and said that it would be impossible because the filter is internal and would require removing the transmission and thus could not be done.
I want to know if this was just a line of BS they handed me to avoid having to the do the job 3 hours before quitting time...or if they genuinely couldn't do the job.
So please get back to me when you guys can, thanks a lot, I really appreciate it!
