2002 explorer transmission fluid change

Hey, at what mileage intervals do i need the automatic transmission fluid changed??

my salesman said it doesn't have to be changed until over 100,000 miles, that's why it's sealed and doesn't have a tranmission dipstick........ although, one of the techs said to have it changed at 30k...... does anyone know for certain how often the transmission fluid have to be changed??

thanks

Welcome to FTE!!

I have always changed mine around 30 to 35K miles. I have heard of people running them much longer, but I personally would not do it. For my tranny, the change by a dealership runs $130 - I don't know what yours would be.

The manual says 100,000 for normal driving and 30,000 for "severe" driving.

I would still have it flushed at 30,000.
