Soooo, I know this been discussed but instead of reviving a long dead thread I thought to post anew.<p>The dealer recommends doing a drain and refill.<p>Shouldn't I do a full flush or will the drain/refill be sufficient?

Re: 30k time for tranny flush on my '06 GT... (850arrrsaylikepirate)

depends how anal you are about your car. <p>30K miles is still low, so drain and fill...unless the fluid comes out really dirty, then do a complete flush.

If your tranny is shifting fine, a drain and fill is fine.<br><B>Do it again</B> at your next service and essentially you will have done nearly a complete flush over the period of 5 to 7500K miles (depending on how often you change your oil)!
