The mustang I own has 200,000+ miles on it and as since I've owned it, the transmission has yet been changed (serviced). I've read where with older cars with a lot of miles and them not being maintained to well that it's dangerous to flush the transmission or even simply dropping the oil pan and changing the transmission since the bits of gears and metal that has worn down is actually working as friction for the transmission. I was considering getting my transmission serviced since I've had issues of; late shifting, or not wanting to shift until I let off the gas then press on it again, and also when I crank up the car every now and again the car will rev up to about 2500 rpm then idel down with the o/d off light flashing (showing a issue with the tranny).
So my question is, is it a safe/smart move to at least get the transmission changed without a flushing?
have the same problem?
