I wouldn't suggest it if u are over 100000 miles it could possibly ruin ur tranny if u haven't been changing it every 30,000 miles...

After that many miles you don't want to knock all that built up crud around. Its sad that most people just don't know how to maintain a car. And you can never trust a previous owner sadly.

I know the previous owner and he did change the transmission oil, only once though and she's 94k. Is it safe to change the oil anyways?

There's one way u can take just the fluid out but it involves a evac machine that sucks it all out..

That would involve going to those lube places but isn't that bad. I heard you can cause some serious damage if done wrong

There's no damage that can come from it all it does,, sucks the old fluid out n puts new fluid in by vacuum easy process it only takes about 5-10 min n ur done...

---------- Post added at 02:57 PM ---------- Previous post was at 02:55 PM ----------

The only way it can cause harm is by not using ATF...or the proper fluid recommended...

This process can, and does cause problems on higher mileage cars. You loosen a good bit of debris. If its has not been done every 30k its quite a risk to take. A drain and fill is all that should be done. Go to a reputable shop that specializes in transmissions.
