Question Answered: 

I'm glad that you are aware of the difference between a drain and fill Transmission service and a complete Transmission flush. The drain and fill requires about 5 quarts, costing less due to less fluid. (Approx. $79.95) The complete flushing of the Transmission requires approx. 16 quarts of fluid which is run through a machine and takes about 1 hour. (approx. $179.95) The benifits are greater with a complete flush.
