Default Trans fluid change

I found out that my trucks tranny fluid has not been changed in 60k miles so this is a MUST and will be done this weekend, how bad is this or is it fine just dont let it happen again?

Im not a expert by any means. Changing the fluid now isnt going to hurt anything. Im sure your tranny will thank you for it.Is it still working fine?

I just did mine this weekend - not a tough job at all. I have a 2500 and didn't need to lift the truck at all, plenty of room. I have 48k on my 07 CDT and it was slipping on cold mornings going into reverse and then between 1st and 2nd. tightened up the reverse tension band yesterday (1st to 2nd will be done tonight)- and this morning it's working great! the ATF did smell a little burnt - nothing horrible and there was only a small amount of "sludge" on the tran pan magnet. used the original plastic gasket and no leaks at all. good luck!

I would recommend to ya , to install a good quality synthetic tranny fluid like Amsoil . It has made a believer out of me . If your 4x4 , don't forget to changeout your transfer case oil also .

I only run Mopar ATF+4. I have had problems with other brands, and since none of them want to pay for a tranny rebuild, I went back to Mopar.
