Transmission fluid change
I have read through all of the threads here about tranny fluid changes, and also looked at the sticky for diff and transaxle fluids too.
What I want to know is if just draining and filling the automatic transmission fluid is enough. I know that it will only drain about 1/2 of the total fluid in the transmission if you just use the drain plug on the transmission oil pan. So if I just did that, is it enough? Or do we pay for the full trans oil flush from the dealer for $150+?
The car has 83,400 miles on it and I will be towing, so I'd like to get the transmission serviced before I start towing.
