transmission flush?

Asked by May 26, 2015 at 12:23 PM about the 2008 Toyota Avalon Limited

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I went for an oil change and 24 point inspection of my Toyota Avalon XLS 2008 with 58,000 miles.  I was told everything is up to date but recommend that I have a transmission flush as far as routine maintenance.  I declined but wanted to see if this something that is advisable to get done later.

NO NO do do allow a flush. You don't even have to change the fluid. Toyota specs say the transmission fluid is good for the life of the car. If you look on the dipstick is probably says DO NOT CHANGE. You may opt for a drain and fill but NO FLUSH

If the fluid is brown and/or has a burnt odor then a flush may get a few more miles from an already shot transmission. But 'routine maintenance' at 58k no way. If the fluid is nice and red/pink, especially!
