I have a 2008 Mitsubishi Outlander XLS V6 Automatic 6 Speed with a 105,000 miles, it has never had its transmission fluid changed is it a good idea to change it now or leave it alone? Will changing the transmission fluid do more harm than good? What would be the best place to have it changed? Mitsubishi Dealer, AAMCO, Firestone, Pepboys? Which type of change is the best Flush, Drain and Fill, Drop pan?

We have ran codes no codes showed up, had the battery tested it was good, checked the timing belt and replaced the tensioner for it because we changed the timing belt last year, made sure it was in time...was told it might be the crank shaft sensor but don't want to keep buying parts that may not fix..I'm at my wits end someone please help
Can anyone help me out with this problem I've been having for quite some time, My '07 Outlander front end sounds like a old bed broken box spring, I replaced the sway bars & tire rods on both ends but it still sounds like a broken box spring and no one can tell me where it's coming from. I was told I don't need front struts or springs but I believe they are wrong ( the dealership & pepboys ) every time I go over a speed bump I hear it, especially in the winter, Please Help

My front windshield wiper motor works but not the control card for it and it's not made for it anymore!

I heard a pop while driving. Later in the day when I came back to the car there was a crack that started at the bottom of the windshield below the wiper arm. I assume a rock hit the windshield. The next day a second crack started in another direction. 3 weeks later while sitting in the car I heard a pop and another crack appeared from the bottom on the opposite side of the windshield. The reason I wondering if this is not a simple rock to windshield problem is that the first 2 outlanders I saw in the road today had similar cracks in their windshields.
The hazard lights work. The right tail light keeps going out aswell. When you hit it it comes on. Could it be lose wiring or fuses? Could not locate a fuse for the turn signals and the heater fuse looked fine. Had the car for about 6 months and about a month ago, that's when the problems started.
Could it be the thermostat or a sensor
