I wouldn't flush the trans,just remove the pan.

You should change trans fluid, every couple years and not more than 30,000 miles, on all vehicles.

Some will disagree,but I used to own a trans shop. 90% of all that work,come from not changing fluid. Same on power steering fluid

Will a bad transmission range sensor make my 1992 Nissan maxima jerk and hesitate about changing gears

That is possible but it should set some kind of a fault code, have it tested by a local transmission repair shop, in most cases they will do this for free in the hope of getting the repair business.

Brake System Flush and Power Steering System Flush

I doubt Nissan has a set recommendation for either one.
Generally both systems are sealed and the fluid should last for the life of the car. You could flush each system every 50k if you think there is a chance they could become contaminated.

How much does it cost to have a brake flush and power steering flush for a 2004 f150 FX4 truck

prices on services will vary from town to town, state, to state, country to country. It would be impossible to give you an accurate estimate for the repairs based on the area you live in. Your best bet is to call your local service facilities, whether they be dealer or independent and find out what they charge.

For my area $89 each is pretty average.

How often should i tuneup my 2004 nissan maxima

Same as on all your vehicles

The same as you have done all your life

Tune-ups went by the wayside 25 years ago

Spark plugs etc--every 3 years or 70,000 miles
Filter -every 3 years or 30,000 miles
Brake fluid every 2 years
Trans& Power Steering every 30,000 miles

Set up your own schedule from past experience

I assume you keep no log book, if have to ask

2004 Pontiac Vibe has 77,000 miles. Transmission fluid appears brownish. Do you recommend a flush? Should pan be dropped and filter be replaced? Can a flush cause damage to the transmission?

I recomend servicing the transmision every 50,000 miles. ie: drop pan replace filter and gasket, clean the sump. A flush also gets more of the fluid changed but I would do that in conjunction with a normal service.

Want to know if you recommend a transmission flush for my car? It has over 140,000 miles. What sevices do you recommend?

Yes a tranny flush would be great. I would recommend Either Going out and purchasing a new tranny filter, gasket and Transmission fluid from your local Auto parts store and doing it yourself, CHEAPEST. Or going to your local Valvoline to have it flushed. Cost is around $100

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.
