After the initial change at 5,000 miles, the filter is then only changed at each recommended FLUID change.

Fluid change interval is determined by which fluid you are using. Every 12 months /25,000 miles if Dexron-III or every 4 years /100,000 miles if using TranSynd. This info is published in the WCC Chassis Guide. You may also want to check the Allison website to verify their current recommendations. ED

Allison filter here was $7.95 - Transynd $34.50 per gallon. And yes I did drop the pan and replace the sump filter. Was it necessary? I doubt it but the Allison tech here recommended it and it wasn't that big of a deal. Total refill was about 14quarts. Atleast now I know the maintenance is done on my trans for a while.

The Sump Filter is not "actually just a screen for the large chunks" It is a full element and would definitely be much more capable than just filtering large chunks. I totally agree that the Allison manual says only on rebuild, but I had to know and see for myself if there were any "chunks" in the pan. There wasn't which I am very glad. I did it more for piece of mind that's all and now I know everything looks great in there.
