the brake system flush is acceptable but the condition of the transmission oil is the clue
if it is supposed to be red but is brown and smells a flush id in order
it the oil is tan colour but doesn't smell burnt that will be the colour of the oil

What is oil change schedule for 2007 DTS also transmission fluid change schedule

Your vehicle's engine requires oil meeting GM Standard GM6094M. You should look for and use only an oil that meets GM Standard GM6094M. SAE 5W-30 is best for your vehicle.
The best Brand is 5W-30, Mobile 1 synthetic oil, but you can use Castrol GTX 5W-30, too. It is very important to use only one barand of engine oil.
When the CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON message in the Driver Information Center (DIC) comes on,
means that an oil change service is required for your vehicle.
If the engine oil life system is ever reset accidentally, you must service an oil change for your vehicle within 3,000 miles (5 000 km), or three months wichever comes first, since your last service.
The maintenace tune ups for this car are scheduled at 25K, 50K, 75K, 100K and so on.
Dealer recomend to change the transmission oil and filter at Maintenace II, at 50K, and the air filter too. Use only DEXRON®-VI Automatic Transmission Fluid.
The dealer sugest to flush the radiator every 75K and use 50/50 mixture with distilled water, and use only DEX-COOL. I recommend to flush every 50K.

To flush or not

I would not recommend a flush. This just may stir up a problem. However unless you know the fluid has been changed recently I would recommend a full fluid/filter change. Do not take it to any chain transmission shop. I recommend you take it back to your local GM dealer.

Service for 2005 mazda mpv transmission

Yes, that and the oil of course. Just to be 100% clear on this, i'll explain every step in am automatic transmission service. First, drain the oil from the transmission by removing the drain plug. Second, remove the oil pan from the tranny. Then comes the removal of the filter. Then, replace the filter with the new one. Then clean the oil pan of excess dirt and gasket residue if any, and put the new gasket on the pan. Then you just put the oil pan back on the tranny and top off the oil. For the exact amount of oil needed, call your local dealer, or local garage or parts store. Then just verify the oil level just to be sure everything is OK, and note that most transmissions require the engine to be hot to have the correct level on the oil gauge. It should say if it is needed in your owners manual, or on most oil gauges it says ajust when hot, or hot level and cold level. If in doubt, ask the local dealer, garage or parts store again.
