    Just bought some transmission fluid service using Amsoil from one of the local reps only to find out he doesn't have the machine necessary to do the swap. Is Ford the only place you can do transmission fluid swaps at? The price quoted just to use the machine is ridiculous.

    This phrase seems peculiar. Do you mean you bought fluid or do you mean you bought a procedure?

    If you're changing the tranny fluid, you don't need a machine; just a big syringe (or an inexpensive manual pump of some sort) and a container for drainage. Warm up the tranny...raise the car...remove the fill & drain plugs (in that order) and away you go.

    Any shop with a fluid exchanging machine would be able to do it but finding one to use your fluid may be difficult due to the fact that the exchange machine would have what ever the shop uses, fluid in it.

    I ended up buying the BG Synchroshift II from Optimum that came with the pump and even a leftover cup that you can use to measure exactly how much fluid to pump in. On jackstands it took about an hour to drain and then maybe 15 mins to fully pump in. MT82 car, I think just for the sake of convenience I'd just buy this kit next time I have to change the trans fluid again.
