I dont think you got ripped, that actually sounds on par for a major service for a 6.0 diesel, it does have an external filter however ford recommends trans service + filter change every 30K

I have a 2006 Jetta (purchased two years ago used) with 27000 miles and now it has 39000 miles. Took it to the dealer to service the coolant and they said it's time for a 40000 check up, but specifically a...

the brake system flush is acceptable but the condition of the transmission oil is the clue
if it is supposed to be red but is brown and smells a flush id in order
it the oil is tan colour but doesn't smell burnt that will be the colour of the oil
go to a brake specialist shop for a quote to flush the brake system and an specialist auto tranny shop for a quote then see if the dealer quote is close

What is oil change schedule for 2007 DTS also transmission fluid change schedule

Your vehicle's engine requires oil meeting GM Standard GM6094M. You should look for and use only an oil that meets GM Standard GM6094M. SAE 5W-30 is best for your vehicle.
The best Brand is 5W-30, Mobile 1 synthetic oil, but you can use Castrol GTX 5W-30, too. It is very important to use only one barand of engine oil.
When the CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON message in the Driver Information Center (DIC) comes on,
means that an oil change service is required for your vehicle.
If the engine oil life system is ever reset accidentally, you must service an oil change for your vehicle within 3,000 miles (5 000 km), or three months wichever comes first, since your last service.
The maintenace tune ups for this car are scheduled at 25K, 50K, 75K, 100K and so on.
Dealer recomend to change the transmission oil and filter at Maintenace II, at 50K, and the air filter too. Use only DEXRON®-VI Automatic Transmission Fluid.
The dealer sugest to flush the radiator every 75K and use 50/50 mixture with distilled water, and use only DEX-COOL. I recommend to flush every 50K.

"o/d off" message- what does it mean? Also, the "Service vehicle" note is showing

OD means Over Drive. It's an automatic transmission right? There is a button someplace to reengage OD. Now as of the service vehicle note, could simplely be time to change oil or could be something wrong with tranni. I can't tell you without looking at the truck.

Follow the instructions for arbitration on the back of your repair invoice, look for the information in the Song Beverly act. You can go above your local dealer by getting in touch with the District factory representative, you can also get your local Bureau of Automotive Repair involved.

A vehicle as new as a 2008 should not be running out of oil or loosing oil pressure without mechanical failure of some sort, vehicle should be covered 100% by a manufacturers warranty at least for a minimum of 3 years 36,000 miles at least... Not knowing the history of the vehicle with regards to your specific maintenance practices, as long as you serviced on a regular basis and have records and or receipts to prove it they should be obligated to repair the vehicle... Hope this helps...

2003 GMC sierra 1500 ( dealer rip off )

if you went to a dealer then that sounds about right. they tend to be expensive. you got to remember though that most the time 90k mile maintenence includes radiator flush, oil change, tranny oil change, emissions checks, possibly water pump check. cooling system pressure check. abs checks, brake checks, steering and suspension checks. there is alot of maintenance that can be done. you need a list of the stuff they are trying to charge you. honestly if they do all the work required then 3300 my not be to bad

Oil Changed Flushed Coolant System. Put van in gear will not move

Secretabunda, The trouble they are stating a problem that can cost thousands of dollars. This is not a solution to the problem, just some advice about service shops in relation to what you have said. Please answer the following - Has your vehicle made ANY unusual noises before it was serviced? Did the vehicle seem to lose power when starting from a stop? Did the engine sound like it was going faster at a certain speed then what it did before?. Did your transmission have any problem going into gear.
Do the following before going back or talking to that service shop. Did the vehicle come in on it's own power? If yes, continue. Were you having ANY transmission problems prior to going to that shop? If no, continue. Was the transmission fluid or filter checked, replaced, or added? Did he do any work involving the transmission? Get these answers and write back.
This is the biggest part, and stick to it until the end. Write down everything you have said or what you asked the mechanic to do. Write down what they said, when they said it, and what they were going to do. I think most in here will agree, you are in for a sticky situation.
Go to your Ford dealer and ask for a Service Manager and tell him what has occured and what his opinion is. Tell him the situation fully and in all honesty.
Get a second opinion at this point if you wish.
I would have to agree that a check of the car's computer might not show anything,

This is my own personal opinion, but IF your vehicle was having no transmission problems before the preventative maintenance as you describe, get the car out of there. Have it towed to a reputable dealer by the dealer's authorized tow company. On transmissions - Transmission trouble is costly! A dealership will charge 2 to 3hundred dollars more for a rebuilt transmission, but, these are usually complete rebuilds and are backed by the company and take less time then a local service technician.
