    Check this out from fordtechmakuloco... his take on Ford's Recommended Service intervals are that they set you up for a bunch of expensive repairs out of warranty. He seems to know his way around the EB and has a bunch of informative videos on youtube.

    I been waiting on the 35,000 mark to roll around. Yes I took it to the Lincoln dealer where I know a few of the line mechanics. I will not deal with local Ford dealer.

    Anyway The work I had done was slightly over $700....Ouch! Trans got flushed....BG cleaner run thru it. Then I had them drop the pan clean any clutch residue and metal off the magnets and change the filter. Obviously more fluid then too.

    I keep a vehicle. So I want to take care of it.

    The line mechanic said....You got it broken in now and your doing it right.

    Did you get the roll pin TSB on your 2017? Mine had a TSB so they dropped the pan and apparently used 7 quarts to fill back up. That was at 20k so I will do a filter and refresh in 5k or so.

    Might be a way to get some transmission maintenance for free plus an issue fixed!

    My 2015 only has 26,000 miles now, but I think I will have all fluids changed at 30,000. Differential, transmission, transfer case, etc. Probably wait until 50k or so for the coolant. Then brake fluid at same time I think.
