I got my car in july w/ 93,000 miles and it now has 103,000 miles. It was owned by an older couple who did a lot of highway driving. i was wondering if theres anything i can do to check and see how good a shape my trans is in or should i just leave it alone since it isnt doing anything wierd yet? thanks

if it ain't broke, take a hammer and break it to make it better

j/k leave alone if it's working good

and knock on wood

Couldn't hurt to change ALL the fluid and the filter. That will probably add some life to it. Dirty oil causes premature wear. Same with engines and engine oil.

The only way to tell if its about to go bad (that i know of) is sparkles in the fluid. If you have those, start saving for a new tranny.

I believe that the dealer computer can tell you the percentage of clutch wear, but not 100% sure. That wqoouold be a good indication of the condition.
