Transmission Flush and What Should Be Done

1615 Views 11 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  FocusKnot
My 2006 Ford Focus is coming up on 90k miles and one of the items in the scheduled maintenance is to have the transmission flushed. The dealer wants to charge me $270 and my local shop, which did the 45k flush, does it for $190.

I was looking through this How To: Trans Flush on This Website and see that there is a filter to change also. Should the filter be changed along with the flush or is a flush just good enough for the 90k service?

The only restricted atx filter I ever saw was on a power glide that I owned, and it's just a screen, not a Dacron type filter. That trans shattered the band lining, the chunks would get sucked up and clog the screen.
