2002 Ford Taurus Question: do i need to change the transmission filter when changing the transmission fluid

Yes, change the filter. Best thing would be to flush the fluid completely. Many shops have the ability to do a transmission flush, I recommend get it done.

Visitor,dont give advice about things you know nothing about.
Yes, change the filter and flush it also. After this service it should be fine to only flush the trans fluid as long as you proform the service regularly.

Yes, you definitely need to change transmission filter every time you change the transmission fluid.
