transmission fluid

I have a 95 coupe with 28,350 miles on the clock I never changed the transmission fluid yet.When should it be done.I put 2,500 miles a year on my vette. Automatic. Live in PA.The reason for the question is the fluid is 14 years old.Does it break down?

I agree...because of the time factor...heat is the fluids worst enemy but not driving much and getting to operating temp is also hard on trans fluid/engine oil/brake fluid they pick up moisture over time. I would also change coolant if you haven't already

Yah, same here. You should have changed it like years ago. I don't know if that'll still run?

I did the trans flush, which changes all the fluid, on my 93. Just draining it only changes part of whats in the trans. Expensive but new trans all real expensive! JDR

I keep hearing that flushing a trans is a bad idea, washes all debris into the trans. This seems to be in dispute,as to whether you should just drop pan and replace filter or flush. I always get conflicting opinions on this. what is the real deal?a
