First Transmission Flush at 163K?
Just bought a 2004 4 cylinder outback, 1 owner drove all 163K mainly highway miles. Her maintenance records didn't show any tranny flush and the oil is needing changed (it seems to be shifting fine, but I want to ensure as long a life as possible).
The risk if I change it - any particles from previous wear that may be helping it shift now will come out and it might be enough to start causing issues.
The risk if I don't - potentially shorter vehicle/tranny life.
