In recent oil change, mechanic said to change tranny fluid as it getting dirty but that it wasn’t urgent to replace, can still keep going for a bit.
I had wanted to get it changed that same day, but no time from mechanics at shop so I would have to go back another day and haven’t gone back yet.
For whatever reason, I was researching online and found mentions of times where it may be better not to replace tranny fluid even though old as it has worn down well with the transmission & swapping it with new fluid makes it a different environment and could cause problems instead. And it applied to new and/or old cars, I forget exactly.
So for this particular car, should I change the fluid or not? It’s at close to 30,000 miles. When I checked it, it didn’t look pitch black dirty, but then again I’m not a mechanic to know exact dirty level coloring.
I don’t think car’s had tranny fluid changed since bought from dealer, so it’s been a few years now.
