Hey 2012 9.0 RS here. I just turned 130k on the Box 馃摝 I'm considering changing my transmission fluid. Would it hurt it at this point? Because I don't want my transmission to start slipping. ( Auto) Or should I leave it? Opinions?

Not an expert, but what I've gleaned about the trannies on our toasters is that the safe middle ground is just do a drain & fill, not a complete flush. That apparently leaves "enough" of the thick metal sludge to keep it from being destroyed.

I'd still be nervous, however. I'd be tempted to leave a lot more sludge in, myself. But I am not a mechanic, just an average dunderhead.

Yeah with only 130k miles I think that's a good idea. Thanks!
