Went to dealership for oil change.

Now they are saying I need:

Battery cleaning ($12, Labor $75 ???)
Transmission filter change (along with fluid) ($lots).

I seem to recall that the transmission filter wasnt supposed to be changed for like a LOT more miles than 50k....

Truck right at 50k miles... 2008 GMC Sierra 2500 Duramax/Allison...

If I remember correctly, you do need to change the filter,
 and fluid at about 30,000 miles, and at about every 30,000 thereafter.
If you are towing a trailer, this puts a LOT of strain on the trans and it's fluid and parts.

 My 205 Ram 3500 gets changed every 25,000 as
 I tow a monster 4 horse with Living Quarters.

Why don't you find other dealerships out there? I'm sure there must be the right advice for your truck problem. My husband convinced me to have a truck because he said one of the very best types of cars to have is a truck. It can help you get things around effortlessly. It also is helpful if you like to serve and help people around you move stuff.
