2 Answers

There will be a lot of people disagree with me but NEVER allow an transmission flush, it will pick up crap from filter, and most transmissions have a magnet on bottom of pan to collect metal 'dust' and a flush disturbs all that, circulating it through your trans doing more harm than benefit

Thank you that was my thought also. Most lube centers want to flush and sounds like trouble to me.
