I listen to BTS..never flush..drop the pan change the filters and add fluid every 30k. If you have a pre '08 replace the pan and stupid screen with a real filter and the '08 up pan.

Should cost less than $150

Filter #8C3Z7A098D
Pan #8C3Z7A194B

I have an 08 pan....holds a bit more fluid...but also allows the use of the upgraded trans filter that is better.....I got a Mag Hytec pan off ebay for cheap....if you decide you want one hit me up w offer, its currently just sitting in my garage.
