Having problems with your 2006 Ford Five Hundred ?
Would like to service my 2006 ford Five Hundred transmission. I am told that it takes a very special and expensive fluid. Is the job strait forward other than that?
If you have CVT transmission owner's manual suggests replacing transmission fluid @ 60,000 miles. Only fluid in transmission and not torque converter should be replaced and the cost for this at ford dealer is around $250.00. Fluid for this type of transmission is expensive and made exclusively by ford, so going to a transmission shop other than dealer is not an option. That being said I highly recommend it as my transmission performance definitely improved.
I own a "06" 500 with 150,000 miles on it. My Ford dealer recommended transmission service at around 90,000 miles. I don't recall the exact cost but it didn't seem unreasonable, around $140.00. No special pump out or filtration, just drain and refill.
