Do I need to change transmission fluid on my 2005 ford freestyle


The high pressure filter and fluid are supposed to be changed at 60k intervals. Ford has a very specific oil for this transmission and the service fee will be $300 to $450 - mine was around $420.

No other car place will touch the CVS transmission in a Ford Freestyle and most Ford dealerships are clueless on thier maintenance and repairs. On most issues that crop up the first thing they want to do is swap it out - for $4000+.

How often to change transmission fluid


I'm sure this depends on the year and model. For example a 2002 Honda CR-V should have the transmission fluid changed at 120,000 miles under normal use but under severe conditions it should be done at 60,000 miles.

Anytime the fluid looks brown or murky rather than red it should be changed.

To change the fluid you must drain it and refill it a total of 4 times, driving a short distance between changes. This is because the oil that comes out of the drain plug is less than half of what is actually in the transmission. You can have Jiffylube do it for about $75 or a Honda dealer for twice that. To do it yourself by draining and refilling 4 times may cost about $50 for the fluid. It is strongly recommended that youj use only Honda ATF purchased from the dealer. Use Dexron only in an emergency until you can get the Honda fluid.

Where is transmission drain plug 2001 FRD Explorer Sport


2001 Ford Explorer,depending on the engine option,will have either a 4R70W or 5R55E model transmission.Neither trans has a drain or fill plug in the pan or case.Changing the fluid is achieved either by removing all the pan bolts,removing the pan and fluid,then reinstalling and adding fluid through the filler tube,or by a shop that has a total flush machine that usually hooks into the cooler lines.I also change the filter on both transmissions as part of the fluid service.The 4R70W trans has a gasket that is reuseable for the life of the vehicle.The 5R55E pan requires a new gasket if dropping the pan.
