Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I missed the 50,000 transmission fluid change and after 100,000 was told not to change it at all. Is this right? If so, will it hurt to top off the old transmission fluid with fresh transmission fluid?

At 100K I would have changed the fluid. At 180K, I would forget it. Your close to the point of a rebuild at this mileage and changing the fluid will accelerate that.
