Fluid Change!?

At how many miles before you...

got your Tranny Fluid changed?

How about your antifreeze?

Have you ever gotten either changed?


Im at 67,000 and Just made my appointment for tomorrow ...Antifreeze/Tranny Fluid change($100 thumbsdown)

And some of the easiest habits are the hardest one's to break!!!

antifreeze should be changed/topped off as needed. 40K miles on a GT with lots of miles on it and the coolant was in the low, so I'd think by 60K you'd need a flush.

Automatic tranny fluid, 60K service. thumbsup

gearbox oil should be changed every 40K miles, unless needed before that wink

Every year i change my transmission fluid, Air Filter, spark plugs and rotate tires.

Did the same to my previous car. Had it 6 years and never had to take in for service except for a tune up. No engine problems ever.

changing your spark plugs yearly is foolish, and you should change your Air Filter as needed, not on a set schedule thumbsup
