With a hundred and forty thousand miles and never been serviced b4 don't touch it wrong move fix what needs to be fixed . I did a tranny on a Bonniville with high miles that never was serviced with in a month the tranny blew. Any smart honest mechanic will tell you not to touch it or else your hit believe me or not your choice?????
