    I went to the dealer yesterday. I recently went over 100,000 miles. I asked the dealer about changing the Transmission fluid. They told me if I have the sealed Trans with the WS fluid, it never gets changed. Wow! I was suprised. I thought even at 100k it would get changed.

    I've already changed mine out once, getting ready to do it again next week. I'm doing the 45k mile service in my shop. ALong with diff fluid and oil, cabin filters, engine air filter. It is a mechanical device that generates heat/friction. Trans fluid is cheap compared to repairing the transmission later on.

    That is what I thought. But they told me they don't change the fluid in these transmissions.

    My immediate response to the dealer would be "Then why is there a procedure written in the factory repair manual for the fluid change?"
