By all means make sure it'* a new fluid flush.

When you don't use a flush, you only change about 1/3 of the ATF.

its not even $100 for a flush if I remember right, and from what I gather its well worth the money. Its better than getting a tranny rebuild ($1500+).

1500 is CHEAP for a rebuild.

My flush was $80. Well worth it.
