I have 160,000 miles on my 2002 45RFE. I bought the truck used, and it had 110,000 miles on it then so I dont know of previous fluid and filter changes. I did change the filters and fluid when I first bought it and they appeared clean, but not sure of previous intervals. I plan on changing again in the near future but am in no way going to buy the 30,000 services the manual calls for. I am fairly certain that this is the original transmission as well.

My driving style is mostly spirited, but do get on it at times, and also "drive Mrs. Daisy" at other times.

Severe Duty on my 2010 is actually 5/60,000. I know the Synthetic ATF+4 is worlds better than the ATF+3 Synthetic-Blend much less the older stuff and I use to 30,000 mile changes on the old conventional fluid.

Right now my plan is to just change it every 3 years (likely 24,000-30,000 miles in my case) but since I dont do flushes I only get about half the fluid each time.
