What are your thoughts on trans flush

IM about to get my service done by the 5th of next month. I was planning on doing the transmission flush as well. Should I do it or have them just drop the pan and change the filter.
It's an 06 gt with 61,000 miles.
I heard bad stuff about doing the flush on transmissions... Anyone with flush experience.
I was thinking about the flush since I just bought this mustang from the dealer 4 months ago. Who knows how well it was maintain by the previous owner.
For got to mention its a auto not manual . Got to learn to drive a manual that's why I got a auto lol

I work in the parts dept at a dealership. IMO I would not do the flush especially if your transmission is fine. Seen it free up debris and cause problems. More often on cars that have never had it done because there may be more of a build up somewhere. Also pertains to coolant flushes as well. Idk how many cars I've seen do a coolant flush with 100k or so never been done before and boom there goes the radiator. I think you would be safe changing filter and fluid. Instead of spending $ on flush buy some royal purple for it. Recently changed mine with it and love it. Hope this helps, just my experience with it. I attached a picture of some BG products that I've used. Well all accept the moa oil conditioner. I can say the rest is worth the money. Noticed big difference after the 44k and ISC cleaned the carbon deposits and such. Put plugs in after the cleaning and the Mach is running great.

Where did you get it? Does it have a certain name? On that picture I like the body lines on the hood. Gives it some character. Good choice it def stands out.

I bought the car with that hood already. Thats what really caught my eyes on my stang and in my opinion change the looks of it, totally different view in person. Try the web page here is a pic of the brand inside the hood it also had an imprint of 10 04.

I agree one of the better looking s197 gt'. Yeah the lines are probably more aggressive in person. That's what sold me on the Mach, hood and shaker. Just wish they would of used the 01 cobra bumper
