IMO, I would change it with this mileage. It'* really not to difficult to do yourself. The instructions in the Tech Section worked for me(Thank you very much Bonneville Club). The ONLY thing I ever wondered is what does the Xmission Oil Filter FILTER???!!! I mean, all the "crud" is located on the magnet on the oil pan.
BTW, when you "Change" the Xmission Oil, you gotta remember that the approx 7 quarts that you drain is not ALL that is in the system. So it'* really not a complete change. BUT, the new oil you put back in will rejuvinate the oil that'* already in the system(plus cleaning the pan magnet is always a good thing).
