Default Transmisson Flush vs Drain

Hi, new memeber here I have a question if you guy's don't mine throwing your thoughts into relating to transmisson flushes vs refill draining. The question i have and i'm beating my head against a wall over is do i get a transmission flush at 85,000 miles if the transmission has never had one or do i just do a drain and refill, and will that be enough for the stress i'm about to put on it with all the modifications? Thanks guy's great forum..i will be around for awhile...

What year is your car? 4spd or 5spd auto?

I would do a drain/refill to be on the safe side.

Agreed. Do a drain and fill. There's a number of posts here concerning flushes making the maxima trans worse. Welcome aboard.

It is a 5 speed I bought at 60,000 but never maintained the transmission and now that I'm starting to mod im concerned about the stress im about to put on it. My dealership said to flush it but you can never trust those cocksuckers they just want your $$ so I thought I would ask for advice.. you think just drain refill?

I've had mine flushed twice with Mobil 1 Synthetic since I've had the car. Every 20,000 miles. I haven't had any problems. They disconnect one of the lines going to the tranny cooler and keep adding fluid until the fluid coming out of the line is clean. They do this while the car is running using the transmission's own pressure to pump the fluid instead of forcing fluid into it.

Drain and fill does not replace all the old oil, a flush does. You be the judge of whats better. My advice, if you're going to be hard on it, flush and get a heavy duty torque converter.

I was thinking of doing a drain on mine because of all the bad reviews I've heard about the flush. Don't have money for a new tranny.
