    The owners manual will give you the intervals for trans service, make sure to follow the correct schedule for how you drive the vehicle. Yes there is a filter inside the trans pan. Check the estimator link on repairpal for estimate.

    30,000 miles for severe duty; 100,000 miles for normal service. Lean towards severe. Have a fluid exchange service (flush) done to have the most productive fluid service.

    ford saids change the fluid and filter on the 5 speed at 150k, realistically it should be done every 30 to 40 k
