I thought 50k would be a good place to change. Found out local Chevy just pumps out trany, does not pull pan. My trany Has an external filter. Trying to weigh in on this as will hitting 50k about time of Mayberry rally.

I haven't changed trans fluid in 20yrs. Haven't had one long enough to rack up enough miles. Haven't changed tires either! 😀

My "former" dealership tried that. I just reminded them that I was paying and wanted both filters changed. After a five minute sales pitch, They said ok it but it would cost more, take longer. Told them no problem. That is but one of the many reasons they are my former dealership!

I change the fluid on my Ram 1500 every...uh, hold on. It doesn't even have a dipstick and is never changed. Glad I only keep it about 125,000 (when the warranty expires).
