Transmission fluid: To change or not to change?
Ok, everyone under the son has told me to never change/flush the transmission fluid on a vehicle with high mileage if it wasn't done on a regular basis. Is this true?
The guy that runs the local Grease Monkey told me that if it's changed at high mileage and it's never been done before then it will strip the lining of metal shavings and cause the tranny to slip in a week or two. I've heard that Pep Boys won't even do transmission flushes anymore because a lot of folks were coming back with the very same issue. So what's the real story?
Should it always be changed no matter what or only if it's been done on a regular basis from the beginning?
BTW, I bought my Ranger when it had 183,000 miles and now at 210,000 I’ve yet to change the transmission fluid. So far so good.
