At 25000 your safe and your oil should be pretty clean. For the price of three quarts of ATF u might as well change it anyways :drunk:

I changed my transmission fluid in my mustang every two years or twenty thousand
miles whatever came first.It's a good rule of thumb!

You really should flush and refill your transmission fluid when the fluid turns to a really dark color or black color. You can always check it though.

When I build an engine, break in oil comes out at 1000 miles. After that every 2,000-2,500 miles.

If you are waiting till your trans oil is dark or black in color damage has already occured. I have my transmission flushed in my Windstar vevery time I take it in for a state inspection. On standard transmissions it is not as critical but needs to be done. I agree with the 2 years 24,000 miles.
