 Fluid replacement

Had regular service done on my 04 Silverado at nearby Chevy dealer last week. It's just a few miles short of 50K. Service advisor, or whatever you call the guy who leans on the desk and writes up your order told me tha I should have the fluids changed in the front and rear diferentials, transfer case, and transmission (manual) four in all while they have a special price in effect. ONLY 79.95-each or total of 320.00 plus tax. WOW, Why? Never changed one in my life, why start now? Does anyone do this? Frank.

I change the fluid in the manual tranny of my Ford Ranger every 25k miles or so. It has cheesy rubber plugs on the top of the case (can't inspect them without pulling the transmission)that tend to dry out, shrink and let water in. It's cheaper to change the fluid than replace the transmission. I must say that it always shifts better once the fluid is changed.

I do it and have paid a little more for it but it's peace of mind and preventive too. And I did want to hear any bitching from the dealer if I had problems down the line since they reaped the money on the front end ---pLUS the extendd warranty I bought from them (I also use mine commercially) Having a background in automotive service engineering as a technical writer/service engineer, that info about service-at-mileage doesn't make it into the publications without good reason which is based on extensive testing and past warranty data.

For years Ford had a program where they would pay local (suburban Deroit) truck owners to bring their trucks in at certian mileages, disassemble them, inspect and glean information and data from them. Of course they reassembled them too. I have a buddy who worked in another division of Ford that would buy competitor's products like a Dodge Ram and disect them---like the doors. I had just bought a new Ram in '95 and my buddy says to me "my dad just cut one of those up at work. You'll have nothing but rust problems with your doors". Sure enough I did. And the '99 Ram did too--3 doors were replaced. The '03 I have now has been rust-free, though a week after I bought it Chrysler sent me a letter stating that they will cover the paint for 100,000 miles or 10 years due to "contaminated primer". Nice.

I 100% agree that changing fluids is the best preventive maintenance that you can do, even if the owners manual makes no mention of it. Gearboxes and diff's see a lot stress and metal particles are inevitable, but without any filtration, the particles continue to circulate...until the fluid is changed. I've gone all synthetic in driveline fluids.

If you have the limited slip clutch packs it is a good idea as the differential fluid will be under greater stress. I changed mine at something like 60 K. I believe it is listed in my service schedule.
I changed the differential on the 97 Ford also, but this was due to a leaking seal.

Thanks for the responses, I agree yhe fluids should be changed, but 320.00, no that place isn't going to do it. Frank.

Frank don't quote me but I'm pretty sure the dealer changed the trans filter and purged the system (which I had done every 5-7000 on my other Rams), and removed the rear axle cover and replaced the seal. Some oil chnage palces just suck it out of the filler hole which leaved the sludge. I did the math just on the materials and would have been a little over half the cost. Then add my time for labor and running around trying to dispose of the fluids. Well worth it to me.

Earth; I'll ask them how they do it, perhaps they do more than just drain and fill. Frank.

i had it done in my F250 around 100-120k miles when a rear end seal blew. it is a good idea especially if you need the truck to go a long time. I'll probably have mine done again around 175k miles as added insurance. I'm currently at 150k miles.
