Auto experts advise going for such a service after every couple of years or 30,000 miles, whichever happens first. Unless your vehicle’s transmission maintenance is overdue, total transmission flush will not be necessary. Besides, grim or sludge buildup, or burnt color or smell of the old fluid means it’s time for a full flush. The replacement of old fluid and simple drainage would be well-enough, if the transmission has been undergoing routinely performed scheduled maintenance from before.
