I have 171,000 on the odometer. Been about 60k since last change. Was either going to take it to valvoline where they charge about 100$ and use max life fluid. And for a little extra they run some cleaner and s**t through it. Or the dealer who chargers $109.

Opinions?

I don't know that I agree on that one if the dealer is only charging 109 bucks to do the job for him. IIRC, I spent almost 90 bucks on 9 quarts of fluid and the filter when I dropped the pan on my own 2 years ago. I'd gladly pay someone 20 bucks more than it would cost me to avoid the mess and having to dispose of the fluid properly.

I dont think there is any problem with getting it flushed. With all those miles who cares. This way it can flush out all the solenoids and i also then dont have to deal with the miles.

Go ahead and give it a flush. I bet with in 3 months you need a new transmission.

Our transmission suck to begin with. Forcing clean transmission fluid (and cleaner) through the transmission will strip away whatever is holding your clutch packs, friction disks, etc together. Read the big old block of text quoted by Sabrewings in this thread.

trust me Iffy warned me about this so i didnt do a flush
i did a fluid and filter change and even after that it got much worse, if your tranny is getting high in mileage might as well make a trannsmission fund that you put $$ into every month so when it goes you can rebuild it or get a brand new one. these tranny's are pure gabage.
Iffy... your getting alot of enemies last couple of days lols, i gots you back! Very Happy learned alot from you and BB. thanks i appreciate the info you guys provide

No its cool. I have been on the forum for over 4 years and i do appreciate the input. I just figured it wouldnt hurt anything since the trans still shifts like it did 100k miles ago and havent had any issues so maybe a flush would help it to continue to run strong
