2001 Ford Taurus 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 189599 miles
Good day. I have a 2001 Ford Taurus SES (3.0 OHV Vulcan)
I recently had some maintenance done. The shop recommended changing the transmission fluid (getting brownish in color, no burnt smell)
The vehicle has 189599 miles.
I do notice an occasional transmission fluid leak after heavy driving (usually hot weather) after the car sits for a while. As long as the fluid is not low, it shifts well.
Is it advisable to have the service done? Bars makes a stop leak product for transmissions which is supposed to work better with new fluid.
I was just concerned after seeing a post about not servicing a high mileage transmission.
Thank you for your help.
have the same problem?
