Customer Question
I have a Ford...

I have a Ford. Your tabs do not change. But maybe I can get an answer from the Chevy guy. I need to know how often the four wheel fluid must be flushed from a Ford 250 Super Duty diesel, if ever.

Mechanic's Assistant: How old is the engine? And when was it last serviced?

Engine is 5 years old, serviced regularly. Last May most recently.

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your F-250 Super Duty?

2013

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F-250 Super Duty yourself? What have you tried so far?

No. It was recommended. I have had many trucks in the past and can't remember anyone recommending this to me before.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Just this issue for now.

Are you referring to the front and rear differential fluids?

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
It was referred as four wheel fluid, but I believe you are correct.
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
No. I am not doing the repair. I have had many trucks in the past and do not recollect doing this service previously.
Ford Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 6 months ago

The usually means both the front and rear differentials as well as the transfer case, a lot of shops try to upsell this service but Ford recommends it be done at 150,000 miles. Most folks do it at 100,000. That comes down to you. You fine at either rate till 150K.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.
