fuel filter should be done every 15k...

trans every 30k, as well as green coolant. Its never a bad idea to change your powersteering fluid out, or service the transfercase or diffs if they have never been done...

no...if your unsure i would do it for sure. Drain the pan, replace the filter, and drain the torque converter...

I agree with Marc on the replacing the filter, and draining the torque converter and I would put in a good name brand Synthetic oil that is made for your transmission.

how do u change the filter? the fluid looks good. i will see the filter as soon as i take the pan off right? i am thinking about getting a different valve body ithink it is called the grid that fluid flows through so i might wait until then to replace all the fluid since i will have to drop the pan anyway
