Default 2006 Saturn Vue red line transmission fluid change at 222,000 miles????

Hello everybody! I have some concerns about the vue I bought... i bought it with a blown motor only paid 700.00 so i went ahead and swapped it with another one, seem to run good other than the transmission shifts a little firmer than I remember when I had my 07... This one reads 222,000 miles not sure if it's the original tranny but the fluid seems very dark I'm kind of worried on touching it or changing it since I had problem in the past with trannys not shifting right and after changing the fluid they get worst or not move at all, would this apply to this transmission or it should be fine if I change the fluid?? Anybody with some suggestions that is familiar with this type of transmission would be great! Thanks in advanced...

New fluid will always be beter for a trans than old.

NO flushing! Just a couple drain and fills and you should be golden.

Ok, I'm going to try a drain and fill... should I go to the gm dealer and get the factory fluid? or should I go to the auto parts and get some there.it seems like it takes a z1 model?? Thanks
