My dads taco hasn't had the trans fluid changed since he had it. It now has 138,000 miles on it. The trans acts like it is kinda slipping or something. We were going to change the filter and fluid in it but some ppl told me that changing the fluid in a neglected trans will cause it to go out a lot faster. Is this true? Or, should we go ahead and change it?

It's an old wrench tale. It was considered fact way back when. If the tranny is slipping, you're screwed anyway. Change it and see what happens.

if its an auto i think you have to have it flushed, just changin the fluid out of the pan will only get a little bit of it, and still have some left in it, and yeah if its alreayd slipping i think the damage is already done
