2002 Lexus ES300 Question: When to Change Tranny Fluids

At what mileage should I have the transmission fluid flushed? Me Lex has 72,000 miles and as far as I know has never had the fluid changed. I don't want to push because I LOVE this car! -
Answer 1
There is no given mileage interval. The ATF has to be inspected at every 30K miles. If the fluid's color is changed, has an odor or there is a shifting issue the fluid needs to be changed. On most Lexus the fluid needs to be changed at 60K. Use only the approved ATF. Zee -
