Auto Shop: O'Neill's TransmissionType of Fluid: Dexron?
O'Neill's, family owned, have been serving customers for over 50 years. They test drive and scan your vehicle's computer BEFORE any work is performed. They make the concerted effort to properly diagnose issues and convey options to customers.
In my case, vehicle has 101,000 miles and trans fluid had not been changed. Fortunately, there was very little debris in pan and inside filter.
I chose not to "flush" after discussion their recommendation due to the chemical components in the flush fluid used by other non-specialty shops. These will often ruin seals and other components that lead to total trans failure.
Always have this service performed at transmission specialty shop to avoid the numerous consequences that fill this posting site.
After all, would you allow an orderly to perform your spine surgery? Or a surgeon who has the experience and knowledge required for proper results. Your choice.

Auto Shop: Retro LubeType of Fluid: ???
Purchased my car 1 year ago...all i've done to it was oil changes. Went to this Retro Lube (all previous changes were at Wal-Mart) and they were done in 20 minutes. They explained that my air filter needed replacing, my transmission needed flushed, i needed fuel injection cleaner, and front differential work. I replaced the air filter (very brown & clogged) and put in fuel injection cleaner in my gas tank. Is $89.95 a decent price to pay? Or does it seem too much/too cheap?

My car turned 100k, so I thought for its' 100k birthday I would give it a transmission flush. However, when the attendant realized it never had a transmission fluid change before, he told me at this point it would do more harm to my system then good. He said all the debris that collects in the system is most likely keeping things all together and may make my transmission worse if they worked on it. I have never had problems with the transmission and after 10 years it still moves right along (hopefully not "Famous Last Words").

Its good to have a shop you know & trust! I go there all the time and the owner said the trans work is usually about 200 bucks. He knows I'm unemployed right now so he quoted me $140 to do the job right! Flush, trans oil, filter & gasket. Thats a $60 discount. He knows I trust his work & I'll be coming back!

Auto Shop: TuffyType of Fluid: synthetic
2003 Toyota Camry. It cost me $169 to have the transmission fluid changed with synthetic fluid. It seems like a lot of money for them to put the car up on the lift, hook it up to a machine, then turn the machine on. Though I suppose they have to pay for that machine some how and I'm not sure how often they get to use it. But it still seems like a lot.

I have done many of these services on my cars. You have to know what you want done and trust a mechanic.The corner 10 minute lube change shops try to rip you off all the time , so be careful with them.The oil $45. the pan gasket $25 the filter $20. the labor $80. When you do a change you should change the filter and pan gasket also , otherwise your pumping the oil through the dirty filter.A change is 5-7 qrts of oil a flush is all oil changed , that's 12 qrts.Know what you want !!!

They recommended this transmission flush at every 30,000 miles as part of an overpriced maintenance schedule--I checked the owners manual--no mention of this service needed. Sounds like a money maker to me.

Took my 2003 Corolla LE w/111,000 miles to the Dealership for brakes and a few other things (had a $250 credit to use) they recommended a transmission flush for $197, I hadn't done one in a while so I said sure. The care does seem to run better but I feel like I could have got a better price.

Auto Shop: IndependentType of Fluid:
Had no problems with this 98' Maxima with 97k miles but when I asked a service rep in MD what kind of maintenance I should have done, this was one of them. Along with a power flush of the fuel system (was getting poor milage) the car runs noticeably smoother and more responsive gas pedal. Prior to this I just had the transmission fluid drained and changed at 30k miles. This has been the most reliable car with the lowest maintenance costs I ever had.
