Default Time to change Tranny fluid/filter or get a Flush?

Greetings All!

My '93 SE gave me a scare this morning: I started her up [after sitting all night] to go to work & when I put her into reverse I got no reaction for a few seconds. I immediately put her into N and coasted back down the driveway [sloped driveway, you see] into the street.
By the time I stopped & put her into D, the Tranny engaged like normal. She shifted just fine on the 15 minute ride to work [city driving], and this afternoon on my lunch break I took her for a spin [Tranny engaged/shifted normal] so that I could check the fluid level: level is fine and the fluid looks/smells fine.
The car has 105K miles on her & I believe the previous owner had the tranny flushed at 75K. I was going to go buy the fluid/filter to change them as per TECHINFO this weekend, but is there anything else I should check/do?..Or should I just to it to a shop to get her flushed?

Cold weather can make impending problems more apparent. If it does this again, consider a Lucas or Seafoam Trans additive to see if that may help.

If your fluid no longer looks pink in color, consider a professional flush.
