Re: Transmission fluid change? 153,000 miles...

My opinion is to drop the pan, check the magnets, replace the filter and install the new gasket with the pan and new fluid. It takes type WS or World Standard. The pan bolts don't get much torque, don't crank them down.

I did mine at around 90k. No problems found. It took several tries to get the level correct. I filled it till fluid came out of the standpipe plug, ran it till it was up to temperature and drove it, going through all of the "gears", adjusted the level. Then did the same a couple of more times before the level was stable.
