If the O/D light is already on your '99, your on borrowed time if you change the fluid or not.

What does the fluid look like in the 99 via a dip stick check? Is it red or reddish brown? If really dark colored you're probably on borrowed time. If more toward the red color it's probably safe to change it. Your 03 should be change by a professional as there is a procedure to follow in replacing the fluid.
