40K Service on 3 Yr Old Mountaineer V8

I scheduled some service on my 2003 '03 Mountaineer V8 that will be 3 years
old on Sept 15th. I've never done anything under the hood except oil
changes, a fuel filter at 30,000 miles and an air filter.

The dealer suggests a tranny flush ($139) and a coolant drain and fill
($40). Or they can do a full coolant flush for $90, but he said that the
drain and fill (leaving some new coolant diluted with some old coolant) is
probably just fine at 40K miles. He said the differential doesn't need
service until 60K.

What do you guys think of both what was recommended and the prices quoted?
Seems about right and I've been OK with this dealer before, but I don't want
to overpay or underservice!
