    I understand that when new fluid is exchanged into a one of the newer Ford Allison transmissions it must be heated in order to flow? What is the deal? How does it flow on a freezing morning? Does not make sense to me.

    Thanks,
    Dan

    Ford does not use Allison. That would be GM.

    The new Ford motorhome chassis does have a new, five speed transmission, but it is a Ford transmission.

    I know it was GM, I brain-Farted. But none the less what is the deal with the heated fluid?

    I have worked on trucks and cars for forty years and I have never heard of such a thing. You do have a choice between Dexron 3 or synthetic but you don't have to heat them. Syn. will take the heat ( heat from running) better then dexron and is probably a good idea. The change intervals will also entend with syn. It does cost a bit more so you have to decide if it is worth it. Good luck!
