Flushes in cars over 100k are an absolute horrible idea. Drain and Fill only what is in the pan, you can do that, drive for ten miles, and repeat 2 or 3 times to flush the fluid but the forceful way an actual flush is performed causes more harm than good. If your fluid level is fine you have an internal problem and its probably not going to be covered but you can make a case to Jiffy.

You can try and hold Jiffy responsible, good luck, you will need it.

This is why you should never ever ever ever flush the transmission!! I'm even skeptical about changing the fluid in a newer transmission. I doubt you can make a case against Jiffy Lube with a 12 year old car. You can try TransX. That's one of very few "mechanic in a can" stuff that I've actually seen work first hand. Follow the directions on the can to the letter! HTH. -Jim

Lucas Transmission Fix is also a last ditch product that you can try.
