Default Ford CVT transmission fluid change - dealership recomondations

Brown Bros has a great reputation already - wondering if anyone near langley is also recomended. Looking to get the fluid changed in the transmission - from the little I've looked into its a bit of a job approx 3 hours, I would like to get the filter changed as well but again... have found mis guided information. I'm expected to shell out $300 or so for this, price you gotta pay for these things sometimes.


Car was purchased from Magnusen ford in abbbotsford - from my experience with the sales and what I consider improper installation of oil drain plug and filter - I do not recomend them.

Why do u wanna change it? Usually that's not recommended as regular maintenance. Drain/refill is all I would do on that. R u having issues with it? Most shops charge 2hrs labor for a flush and to drop the pan and filter, but on a CVT that might no be posibble/recommended. You can come by my shop Cloverdale auto repair and we can check it out or DAMs in Langley could help you out. I think the fluid would cost alot on that as I would only put in dealer fluid on a CVT.

changing the high pressure filter and fluid is part of the regular maintance.

ford rape price for filter a lone 230 bucks - lordco 50 bucks

filter and labour I have no problems with - just ford part pricing is what can hurt

Oic, I was reading the procedure today on Mitchells. Doesn't seem that big a deal. Ur cost on that filter thou will probably be less than any shop cause they all will mark up the parts. Stop by my shop if u want a qoute, might even let u bring in ur own filter but they will probally make up for it somewhere else.
