What kind of transmission fluid goes in a Turbo 350?

Dex VI is good transmission fluid, but it was made to enhance the performance of modern models of TH350 and TH400. Using Dexron VI on older models of the aforementioned generation will not harness the same results.

Will a torque converter fill itself?

The torque converter does not need to be primed to fill it. There is no pump inside the torque converter. The pump in the transmission is driven by the impeller side of the torque converter, which is bolted to the crankshaft. If the crankshaft is turning, the pump is turning, too.

How much does it cost to change transmission fluid and filter?

The cost to have your fluid changed by a dealer, service center or independent mechanic ranges from $80 to $250. The average cost is around $100 for both automatic and manual transmissions. We recommend getting the filter replaced and pan cleaned every time the fluid is changed.

Should I flush or change transmission fluid?

As you can tell by their names, a transmission flush and a fluid change are two completely different services. While a transmission fluid change focuses on draining the dirty fluid from the pan, a transmission flush gets rids of all the fluid in the pan, the cooler lines, as well as the torque converter.

Is Type F transmission fluid the same as mercon?

Mercon is a suitable replacement for Type H and Type CJ fluid, but not for Type F. Mercon V—the most common Ford ATF in late model Fords, it is very much like Dexron III. It is not compatible with earlier Mercon fluids, so it should neither be mixed with Mercon or Mercon V used to replace those fluids.
