I brought my car in for an oil change and the mechanic said that he recommends at 30-40,000 miles that the transmission be serviced. He wasn't talking about just changing the fluid because he said the cost was about $120. He showed me the color of my new oil that was just put in and said that the color should be different than what he's seeing there.
Is he for real?[/Quote]
What color is the tranny fluid? It should be redish/pink. Are you having any problems with the tranny? The recommended service for that vehicle is at about 90k miles. And $120 for tranny services sounds about right. It includes Filter and Fluid.
He didn't show me the tranny fluid color just the oil color but I will look at the tranny fluid. I am NOT having any problems with the tranny or anything else with the car. Glad that his price is right but why would he recommend this service at 30-40K when 90k is the recommended service?
