Two years ago my inherited this vehicle with about 108,000 miles on it. Since then we have used the truck off and on since it serves as an additional recreational truck. The truck currently has about 126,000 miles. I have been wanting to change the transmission fluid to keep up with the basic maintenance since I am not sure when the last time it was changed.
I was told by friends and my trusted mechanic not to change the transmission oil since I have no history as to when it was last changed because the transmission will fail.
If I do change it, it is true that I run the risk of the transmission failing? This does not make sense to me, as I am simply changing old fluid with the new to preserve the integrity of the truck. Any thoughts or recommendations in how to proceed?
have the same problem?
