To change transmission fluid or not..
 
Hi, My truck is a 2000 Ram 1500 Quad cab 4x4.I have 90,000 miles on it and plan to keep it.The fluid is not discoloured but I was thinking of changing the fluid since it has never been done that I know of since I bought it used.I hear different responses from people,"if its running good leave it alone"I plan to keep the truck for a long time since I only put 2,000 miles a year on it since I use it for Hunting and fishing only.Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

If it's not slipping or having problems shifting them I think it sould probably be okay, especially if it's not burnt.

If your having problems with the trans I've learned through experience that changing the fluid just makes it worse in most cases on an older vehicle.

I don't think the mileage is high enough to worry about that.
