Hi dear X lovers. ☺ I am new in your community, and I need some exparianced advice from you about changing transmission oil. I am from Armenia and here I have heard from many drivers that its not adviced to change transmission oil till it brakes. So please say me, is that possible to be problems right after changing the oil.
My X is 2004, 3.3L. I drived 133000 miles.

From my experience and what I’ve heard, draining the oil through the plug and then adding as much back as you get out is safe. But it won’t be that much compared to how much is in there. You can also drop the transmission pan and put a new gasket and filter in, and more oil will come out that way. But with older transmissions flushing the system is a bad idea, or sucking it all back out through the dipstick, because it can knock loose any sort of debris that may be acting like a seal or holding gears/clutches in place. I’d start by draining it through the drain plug and adding a new 4 or so quarts to it.
