Sorry to seem like an attention seeker but I have never owned such a troublesome car.  As I have hit 120k I thought I should get the transmission fluid changed. After my experiences with the nearest specialist I decided to try one further afield. When I told him what I wanted he advised me to leave well alone unless the box was playing up. His reason was that he said you can't access the filters in the box and if he just changed the fluid he can't guarantee that it won't disturb any sediment in the bottom which could then compromise the box. This seems somewhat ludicrous to me. Shouldn't a filter be accessible for maintenance?

Never change the fluid it can cause lots of problems if you do. If the box is running ok and sounds ok leave well alone

Thanks, not sure if box is working OK, seems to be affected by so many outside factors. Oh well.
