Should a change it or will it hurt it. I have 60k on it now and I want to service that trans so it last longer. The truck has a TCM tune on it?

I changed mine at thirty thousand and it was dirty. With a bunch of clutch material on the magnet. Plus it started slipping a bit when going into third gear.

You should most definitely change it.

With these transes you should change it somewhat frequently as in 4 qts once a year if you just drive it normal. If you beat on it and race it you should do 4 qts about every 3 months.

I have 18K on my truck...and have changed the fluid twice! My work truck has 110K, and I've changed the fluid at least 6 times! (pulls a trailer) It's cheap insurance in my mind...

I have 52k on my chassis and the trans fluid has been changed probably 10+ times...I should own stock in Redline Fluids! Or buy it by the 55 gallon drum...

Fill entire system with Amsiol and a quality filter like Wix and you can go longer between filter and fluid changes, and you should be just fine to change your fluid now at 60k. Just dont wait that long next time.

I changed all the fluid in my trans (drain and fill) is it necessary to change the filter? If I change it now do I have to replace all the fluid again? Truck has 51k

yes if you change your filter you will have to change fluid... you have to drop the pan to get to the filter...

I changed my fluid at 48K when my trans blew. Now 20K over that and needing to change it. Should I drop the pan or get a flush and fill?

Should I change the filter though? I'm not sure if its ever been done with the previous owner.
