Transmission Servicing


#1

I just bought my son a 1994 Geo Prism, with 154,000 miles. The previous owner had never changed the fluid. Some people think I should change it. Other people think if I put new fluid in it, it’s going to start having problems. I don’t want to sink a bunch of money into, but would like to do the basic maintenance to give it a fighting chance. What do you think?


#2

Do the service. If it’s going to die, it’s way too late to stop it now. There’s no magic in old transmission fluid.


#3

You will start having problems if you DON’T change the fluid.


#4

Do a change NOT a flush


#5

Agree with the others; do NOT accept the service known as the transmission flush. Insist on regular transmission sevice where they drop the pan and change the filter (if so provided).


#6

do NOT go to a jiffyquickopresto lube joint. go to a transmission shop. ask for references from friends, co workers, family and neighbors.

DO NOT go to jiffyquickopresto lube places. EVER. did i say EVER? i meant EVER EVER EVER!
