Question about 2005 Ford Freestyle
I have 120,000 miles on my 2005 Ford Freestyle with a CVT Transmission, do I need to change the fluid in it. thanks
The high pressure filter and fluid are supposed to be changed at 60k intervals. Ford has a very specific oil for this transmission and the service fee will be $300 to $450 - mine was around $420.
No other car place will touch the CVS transmission in a Ford Freestyle and most Ford dealerships are clueless on thier maintenance and repairs. On most issues that crop up the first thing they want to do is swap it out - for $4000+.

It's usually best to change the oil at 40,000 miles because not all of the tranny fluid drains out, as some of the old oil is still in the torque converter.

Your recommended it for 30,000, unless it has been driven hard, then you could change it at a sooner time.

Ford will use a pressurized system to drain ALL of the transmission oil including the residual oil stuck in the torque converter. If you have the transmission oil drained at a local oil changer and/or mechanic, then the transmission oil will not be properly drained because they will rely on gravity rather than high pressure to drain it. I drained mine at 80,000 miles
