Normally, transmission fluid does not need to be changed very often; the regular timeframe is anywhere between every 60k to 100k miles. So, the answer to your question is, it all depends on two things: 1. Are you the original owner of the vehicle and, therefore have put all 104k miles on the car? If so, have you ever had the tranny fluid changed? OR 2. Did you buy the car used? If so, did the previous owner or seller give you all of the maintenance records on the car?

If the answer to questions 1 or questions 2 is yes, it would be highly advisable to change the tranny fluid.

I have over 100,000 miles on my 2002 Jeep. I bought the jeep from a friend. The jeep gran cherokee is in excellent condition and very well taken care of. Question I want to get the transmission fluid...

Some people have complained that after flushing the trans, it failed. But I believe they waited until the trans was acting up and then had it done. Also, a flush is when they hook up a pump and use 5 gallons of new fluid to push out the old. Transmissions have a filter in them that is not replaced this way, and I wonder if that has something to do with it. I have always dropped the pan, changed the filter and gasket, cleaned off the magnet in the pan (another area a flush does not get) and then refilled with new fluid. You may have some old fluid left over, but 90% new is better than 100% old, and you get rid of the dirty filter.

I have approximately 144,000 miles on my 2004 Impala. I have never changed trans fluid & filter since my purchase of the car, already having 30,000 miles at time of my purchase. Now I'm noticing hard...

Having owned a trans repair shop,your correct,if you change it now,
it will most likely slip.

You need to change trans fluid and flush power steering every 30,000 miles

Your trans is a good one and very luck to get past 110,000, even with fluid changes.

Save up $2000 for a rebuild or a CERT Reman,your over due.

That applies to all your vehicles

Bet you don't change your brake fluid every two years,spark plugs every three years or 60,000,
fuel filter every three years,and on and on

2000 Ford Winstar, 80000 miles on it just bought

Seeing as how no one ever changes trans fluid and all vehicles tend to have some trans issues,I would say your best bet is to check with a trans shop and if your comfortable there, have it towed. Unless it is something simple,expect about a $2000.00 repair bill.

My 2004 pontiac montanas tranny slipes occasinally when taking off from a stop light.

the cause of this is either low fluid in the trans or a leaking internal seal in the trans, this causes a loss of hydraulic pressure and then the resaulting slippage

2002 dodge gran caravan transmition bum when

When was the last transmission tune? If you just had one and it wasn't at the dealer all the internal computer values will be off. The same happens as fluid wears also. If you haven't, get the fluid and filter changed, make sure the dealer performs a "quicklearn" on the transmission, this will relearn all the fluid volume vlues and shift points. This is a process which any dealer should perform when they do a trans tune. Hope this helps, if the problem persists, you may have internal damage, but what you are describing sounds pretty simple if looked after right away.

Dodge Intrepid 2000

Have had two intrepids that each lasted to almost 200000 miles - even with teenagers driving the last few years. The gear shifting thing came up on both of them. It has always been hit or miss as to when this happens. the only solutions we used were add transmission fluid, if necessary, and otherwise change the trans fluid if its been 50,000 miles since the last change. Also, letting it sit a few minutes (to cool?) does make a difference.
