Hi I have a 02 volvo s60 turbo awd I want to change the transmission fluid because it's black and thick but auto shops keep saying it's bad to flush it so what do I do.
Do you
have the same problem?

The problem is that you have waited too long. Changing it now can trigger a total failure by washing away the sludge that is helping seal the pressure that applies the clutches. You gotta do this sooner or not at all.

If you change it now you risk immediate and total failure. I would just leave it alone.
