Question about 2004 Hyundai Elantra
I took my car to get an oil change today and my mechanic told me that i needed a tranmission flush. I have 90,000 miles on my 2004 elantra. I have never gotten the transmission fluid changed before. I have been researching a transmission flush online and have found alot of contradicting information about it. Some say it's good to do but others say if you have never changed the transmission fluid before it could be dangerous to do a flush now. Any recommendations? Thank you
USUALLY YOU SHOULD CHANGE THE TRANY FLUID EVERY 40,000 MILES. MORE OFTEN IF YOU LIVE IN A HOT AREA LIKE PHOENIX ARIZONA. YOU COULD HAVE PROBLEMS IF YOU CHANGE THE FLUID NOW. IT IS KIND OF A GAMBLE. IF YOU HAVEN'T DRIVEN YOUR CAR HARD YOU MORE THAN LIKELY WILL BE FINE. A GOOD INDICATOR OF THE OVERALL CONDITION IS TO CHECK THE FLUID AND DETERMINE HOW BURNED THE FLUID HAS BECOME. GOOD LUCK.
