Auto Tranny fluid Question

I'm not sure if my cars automatic transmission fluid has even been changed. I bought the car at 92k and now the transmission has 114. I did put in a newer engine when I bought the car w/ 42k on the motor due to sludge prblems but i doubt they would have changed the auto fluid. When do you typically/suppose to to change the fluid and would it benifit me to do it now. What does a fluid change typically go for. The real only local place for me is VIP auto.

well for a complete fluid change you would probabaly want to have a flush done. Basically they hook the tranny cooler lines up to a machine, that simultaneously pushes new fluid in while it pulls the old crap out, this completely replaces the old fluid, and is a good thing to do to autos every so often. I think Independent shops will do it for around 70, but may be more...I am not too sure on the pricing, cause I have a 5spd

I just had it done with my GF's car. Cost around $150 from a SAAB shop, they are very thourough and they put a new filter in. I would say, when in doubt do the flush ASAP. You never know if or when the previous owner may have done it, and regular flushes (30,000 mile intervals) will definatly increase the life of the transmission.

you should be careful with high mileage trannys and changing the filter, sometimes the gunk inside is keeping things right. It sounds stupid but es true es true. I would say go for it, i never did mine i don't think.

Hey Rico!

yes I have heard this too. because the little bits flaoting around often plug up leaks and then when you flush it you open up leaks and loosen gunk that is trapped in a harmless place and gets in into circulation in the fluid and then it ends up in a bad spot.

which is why people should maintain there crazy automagics to begin with. But its true I have heard of people having problems with flushing older high milage transmissions.

The detergents than many places use in a trans flush are supposed to liquify all those plaqued-up chunks, but you never know...
