PostSubject: Tran Service   Mon Sep 17, 2012 12:56 am

Hey everyonre!

Has anyone ever done their own servicing on their trans ie
oil and internal filter change?

I need to repalce the oil in my trans and Ive been told to remove and replace the filter also
but I dont remember there ever being a filter when I removed the pan.
my trans is a PowerFlite and I need to adjust the kickdown also.
can some one explain how to do this.

the local trans specialist quoted me 300 - 400 just for a basic service.
I think he's trying to ripp me off and dosnt actually know anything
about my trans.

Thanks for your help. Very Happy

Very good Info Strech,

Jase my 55 Dodge had a Power flight in it and I do not think it had a filter. Now are the Power flights in the 58 Plymouths air cooled , do they have cooling fins on their converter Smile .

i believe the guy is ripping you off bad for a 3 or 400 price quote for service, i believe these older cars are easier then todays and a newer car is $120 for a service at the dealer

Jase-
There is a screen you remove and clean, no replaceable filter. The capacity is a total of about 11 quarts with the converter drained, and the only other part you would need is a pan gasket. Many shops use silicone sealer rather than cork gaskets these days.

It is possible that the service also includes the band adjustments, but even so, shop labor time on the entire service is maximum 1.5 Hours.

Considering a shop rate of $80/hour, the labor comes to $120, and fluid and gasket, about $75

My math comes to $195 for a COMPLETE service, so your prior estimate seems rather high.

I would definitely get another estimate before proceeding here.

---John

Yea I can remember they were a screen on it. My tranny cost me about 100 bucks to service, That is just a fluid change. Dang oil and tranny fluid is expensive any more and both my engine and tranny hods about 3 extra quarts of fluid. Smile
