1999 SL1
Default Re: Wolfman's reverse slam fix with PICTURES!

I have a '99 SL1 with 213K miles (still getting 35 mpgs! ). I have this same problem and rough shifting in general. I've had the car for +/- 60K and have never changed the trans fluid based on the warnings of a friend with more auto mech experience than I. He has warned me that changing/flushing the fluid on high mileage cars can often be detrimental. He has said that sometimes its all the crap in the fluid that permits the gears to gain traction and that if you flush it, you'll experience slippage. Any thoughts?

...
Mine: 1999 SL1 SOHC 210K mi

Wife's: 2004 Nissan Quest 3.5 SL 56K

Driveway's: 1998 3.1 Lumina 186K

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
