I would definitely change it if it hasn't been replaced before. Have the fluid and the filter changed (if applicable). It's a good idea to have the fluid flushed out of the entire transmission, trans. cooler and the torque converter as well. If you plan on keeping this vehicle and want it to be reliable, this will really help. Make sure to use a good quality, approved transmission fluid for this transmission.
