i recently wanted to change my auto tranny fluid and filter, but after reading kpengs guide on maintenance im not sure if i want to. he said if the car goes too long without the fluid/filter being changed then after it gets changed the tranny will sh!t the bed.
Generally, that is applicable to e46's that have gone ~150K miles without a fluid change. The thought is that changing the fluid then can loosen gunk in the transmission causing poor performance.
