My service manager said the fluid should be changed every 60k or so many years (can't remember), but I changed mine at 30k.

From my owners manual it says every 30k miles or 50k kms. But that's the 4T60 though

Your service manager wants to make some money on transmission repairs doesn't he? :D

well like i said about 15k miles and that is about the life span of ANY trans fluid

well this is the way i look at it here. ok you can spend roughly $30 on trans fluid once a year or alot more when you bake the trans cause the fluid is old and not protecting the way it should.

And how did they check the fluid?? Did they undo the filler screw to see if any leaked out so they could check it? Sounds like they are trying to drum up business to me. When I had the GA I did mine every 15k or so. Now with the TA its an M6, but I plan on changing it every year at the beginning of the season.
