Does anyone have thoughts on if the transmission fluid should be changed at around 100,000 miles? Shifting is perfectly fine. Mechanics have told me to leave it alone, or the change could cause problems. One dealer will not touch the fluid change, as they stated it could cause problems with shifting. Once I had a 2004 BMW 745 and it caused so many problems after the fluid change, that BMW had to reprogram the whole vehicle. That car had a leak, so this is why I changed the fluid and moved forward.
Also, I ordered this removal tool
, from MotivXTools, and it has no notches. It appears to fit really nicely. Does anyone recommend any other removal tools?
The dealers have become too expensive to change the oil (originally I was saving $20), but now it is like $45-$50, so I am going to perform the next oil change at 100,000 even. Looking at $38-$40 plus a one-time charge of $30 for the tool. Dealers are now charging around $100.
Does anyone recommend any other tool (under $30) with the notches?
