Getting ready to do 130,000 tranny maintenance. I bought OEM filters & fluid. Is it okay to just drop pan, change filters & the 6.5 quarts. Or full flush?

If a flush has never been done previously, not a good idea to start at 130,000 miles. Go with your original plan, make sure you get the old pressed in seal for the suction filter out before trying to put the new one in (people have tried....).

Filters & fluid done @ 70.000. I'm getting ready to do it again. Is it a waste of time? It sounds like these Molar transmissions only last between 130,000-170,000 even if there maintained? Help!

I've seen RFE's maintained on bone stock vehicles past 250,000, and I've seen RFE's take a shit at 50,000 lol. You do what you can and prepare for the worst or swap to a better trans lol.
