    @cardoc3 Neighbor ask about a trans flush / filter change in his 06 Sienna xle fwd model . At 93k He never changed before. I told him to check dip stick to see how Trans oil looks . Might be best to leave alone if dirty? He could drain fluid and if real dirty put back and seal up. Any thoughts on this tks Brian

      It's actually a myth to not do anything. The microscopic wear particles that are in the fluid are doing more harm than people realize. Most of the time that someone starts to suddenly wonder if servicing the transmission is a good idea or not is that they have begun to experience some type of a symptom whether they admit it or not. Servicing it might not prevent it from having an issue develop at this time, but it really doesn't out of the blue cause one. I suppose the best way to look at it as, what is going to happen, will happen, whether it is serviced or not at this point if a failure has started to occur. Some failures have the potential to be delayed or avoided if it does get serviced. .
