I was told by a mechanic that since I have never had a transmission flush on my 2005 mercury monterey. It would do more harm than good to get one now. What is your opinion?
Changed thermostat
Light has come on less since weather got colder, flashing and sputtering 1st time yesterday. No diagnostic code
time wise to replase oil pan

I've had the van for a year (bought used in Oct13 its now Oct14) I've replaced the battery (6months ago) and the alternator (1 month ago) the van will start one day and a couple days later not start without being jumped. I don't drive it every day and I make sure all lights are off and doors are closed before I walk away, so they don't drain the battery.
Also the buttons on top that control the psd stopped working. any ideas as to what could cause this?
At idle I'm kinda leaning towards the converter being plugged up or egr may be bad dash says its getting 10 mpg something def wrong anyone got any ideas?thx
The van has dual climate control and rear air . I took battery cable off for ten minutes to see if would reset no change. Right side heats and cools, left side stays cool and will not change is there a way too tell if motor is bad? heat is working on left rear but I dont know if it runs off that damper.
