sounds like your tranny is going out. what i would do is take it to like auto zone and have them do a check on the cars on board comp. if anything is wrong with the car it will give you a error code and a print out what the causes. write back with that code and we can help you better. :)

If your gonna do it yourself, then, sure replace the filter as well. If you have one of those exchange machines do it, the machine, in my experience, gives a reading while it's exchanging. Apparently the lower the reading, the less flow thru the system, usually meaning the filter. Hope this helps.

Testimonial: " I not much a diy person, will take it to a non-authorised service center. Thanks for your info."
There is probably a weak diode in the alternator; this will cause the battery to drain slowly and will often not turn on the indicator on the dashboard.
If you want to get your hands dirty, remove the negative battery cable first (always!) Remove the heavy lead from the alternator terminal that goes to the positive terminal of the battery. Reconnect the negative battery terminal.
If the car starts mornings, a bad alternator is pretty much confirmed but you can't drive real far with no alternator to charge the battery.
Any chain auto parts store will test your alternator free but I don't know if that is in or out of the car.
BTW, you can buy a digital meter for under $20 many places today and most will have a 10 ampere range that will allow you to check for a current drain of the kind you now have which is probably under the 10 amps.
One final item; recently the courtesy light switch on the passenger side rear door of my wife's Jeep recently decided to not quite reach anymore and the battery was drained twice before I noticed that 'door ajar' light was telling us that in advance. Even an amp or two will drag a battery down given time.
