I would not recommend this until 60,000 miles, any sooner is a waste of money.

How many miles till transmission service

Hello. Welcome to FixYa. Please allow me to assist you.

The best service you can give your transmission is as follows: Drain and refill the transmission at 30,000 miles. Flush the transmission at 60,000 miles, drain and refill at 90,000, and flush it again at 120,000 miles. That is the same recommendation that I give my customers in our Toyota service department. Following that maintenance schedule, we do not have any transmission failures.

Thanks for choosing FixYa today. I hope that my assistance proves truly useful to you. If so, a 4 thumbs rating for my input would be very nice of you.

35,000 mile check up what should I have done?

Hello. If you have the owner manual it will have the maintenance schedule in it. If you do not, go to any chevy dealership service window and ask them to make you a photocopy of your car's maintenance schedule. Joe

Dealer is telling me that to get the transmission flushed and gasket changed is $350! What is that about? I am having zero problems with it, but has 75,000 miles on it and has never been flushed

A transmission fluid service does not cost $300 dollars so it sounds like they are going to hook it up to a machine and flush out all the fluid in the transmission. Most automatic transmissions should have a trans service done every 12,000 miles(except BMW they are sealed). I personally think these so call transmission flushes are not needed all though your vehicle is way overdue for a trans service. How does the trans fluid look? They might be recommending this service because you have that many miles and never had the trans serviced. If you have had regular trans services done then you do not need a flush. Ask them how much a regular transmission service is and if they do not offer it to you then take it to a local mechanic and have it done.

How many miles before my 97 deville starts with major problems. and what do i do to keep it running like new

It really depends on the treatment your vehicle has received up until now. I recommend a pro-active approach to preserve whatever life remains in your vehicle. By that I mean scheduled maintennance, oil and filter changes, regular inspections for signs of wear and taking care of issues as they occur. Do not let problems pile up, as you can be overwhelmed. Inspect belts and hoses regularly, make sure you change air and fuel filters, keep it clean and get to know your car. Don't mistreat it!

Toyota 4Runner/maintenance schedule at 140K miles

The maintenance schedule is an outline and should be followed if you want to keep your vehicle in good condition. the maintenance items listed in the schedule are performed at their set intervals for a reason. Manufacturers have found the wear limits on certain parts and those parts may need to be serviced or replaced at those intervals or catastrophic failures may result.

Schedule Maintenance

the trans should be serviced every 60,000, this is a recommendation for all automatic transmissions, also the cooling system hoses should be changed as well as a cooling system flush, the rest of the checks are fluid level checks, the trune up is due at 100,000 miles, the timing belt is due at 105,000 miles
