Default I haven't changed my tranny or diff oil in 125,000 miles...

Yup, I've never gotten around to it and my car is still running and driving like new.

So should I change it?

Not sure it will even make a difference now but I guess it wouldnt hurt to give it a change in the next 40,000 miles or so

No kidding...splitting your life and time between two cities piles on the mileage quickly.

Just changed your oil when you change the tranny.

That's what I do.

There probably isn't any oil left to change. Just top it off.

the tranny fluid in my 1985 nissan pickup has never been changed and shifts a lot smoother than my 2002 wrx which has been changed thrice in 50k miles.



Then again, that doesn't say much does it.

well thats not smart at all, much higher heat, a lot more dust, and a lot more wear metals....tranny is something else entirely.


although its not smart to not change the tranny fluid for 20 years, why start now if its never been done?....

He has a 1990 240sx with the stock ka24e in it. He has a redtop just sitting in his garage he is getting ready to put in. I doubt he cares if he messes up that KA.

The clutch has been going out for the past 20k too, but it just sputters on.
