Before I change out my transmission fluid and filter....
Hi guys. 1st post and I need real insight to my 4x4 auto 2002 Jeep Liberty. I had it for awhile and I just got a routine oil change. The shop informed me that my transmission fluid and filter should be looked into.
I figured to do the messy job myself. However, I have been advised by family friends that when you mess with transmission fluid draining/filter, your transmission will get messed up. It sounds weird to me but family friends claim this to be true. One said he worked in a mechanic shop and knew those who had a complete fush only to gripe that their transmission would later go out.
Is there truth to this or plain hogwash? I am not looking at a fully flush but doing a routine change, for now.
Also: Should I go with a gasket or sealant?
