Don:

I can only assume that he though he might be trading the coach in the near future...he did the tranny service in October 04, traded for another Journey in Jan. 05. He kept meticulous service records and had everything done...guess he just didn't want to spring $$$ for Transynd.

Thanks Gary, I think I am about to tackle this one myself. Just for the main filter and to replace what ever fluid is lost, my dealer estimated around $250. Man they get a hansome price for their service. And BTW, that was a "special labor reduced" estimate.........

Update on the filter change. I just completed it about an hour ago. Gary was right on with the part numbers. The kit for the main filter and gaskets was $36.07, and the Transynd was $40.02. A little more than $80 bucks out the door. Even stopping at the local auto parts for a new clean pan and cool new funnel with a 1 quart fluid bottle at the top, I still am under $90 bucks for the service. It took about an hour, and I took my time. I lost almost exactly one quart of fluid, so I still have 3 quarts of Transynd left!

I bought the parts at a Transmission shop by my house that was listed in Allisons service. Really friendly and helpful. That was after I called a local "big truck" repair shop nearby. They kinda blew me off. I guess not a big enough order to get their interest.

Anyway it was an easy service, and I saved a bunch of money. If anyone local needs to do the service and doesn't want to buy a gallon of Transynd, let me know. Thanks everyone for all the advice and research. Next I will probably do the oil change. The only hard part here will be getting off the factory installed filter. I guess at the Cummins factory they have a habit of really putting them on tight.

That will be the next adventure!

Sarge

Boy that's the truth Don. I just went down and put about $120 in the tank, and that was for less than half a tank!!
