When Does My Ford Need Its Transmission Fluid Exchanged?
It is an excellent maintenance strategy to follow the recommended maintenance schedule for your Ford’s transmission fluid exchange service. Ford F-150 models generally need to have the automatic transmission fluid exchanged at 150,000 miles. Ford heavy-duty trucks, commercial vans, or SUVs hauling heavier loads often benefit from transmission fluid exchange at shorter intervals because fresh fluid helps protect the transmission system’s inner components.
