    While I have read some great write-ups on flushing the auto trans. in my pickup, I decided what the hell and had the dealership do it. I have done everything else to it at home, so tossing a little money to them at 80K was not a problem for me......and honestly that new "sealed" transmission SCARES me to work on:eek:

    While they were at it, I had them flush the brake fluid as well cause they gave me $25 off the service. Why did I have them do this?? Cause its cold outside, no garage, and it was a good deal.

    All said and done, flush tranny+brake fluid flush+adjust rear brakes came to $260 and change.

    Gotta say, the dealership in Idaho Falls ID is the shit. But hopefully I dont need to go there for anything but oil/air filters and spark plugs for another 80-100K!!!!

    Good to know. I havent had them do any regular maintenance type work on my truck but it has been in there for the timing cover TSB and while the were fixing that, they noticed my water pump was leaking so they swapped that out as well. All said and done...$0.00 out of my pocket since it was still under warranty.;)

    Yeah, I hear ya about not taking it there to do regular maintenance. I figured after by the book diffs/tcase/spark plugs/ujoints/power steering fluid/regular oil changes at home I could bring myself to let them do this service for me.......
    I would also be more willing to do it if I had a garage right now, its to cold and the ground is covered in snow/slush....And I got lazy:D

    Oh god how I NEED a garage BTW!
