Its just a recommendation. Any dealer with a transmission service would, drain, flush, refill.
Its your car, just wanted to mention that its a good idea to change out all fluid in the trans. Its a costly part if it goes and makes headaches when your car is down for a week or more getting a new one installed.
Barely took half the fluid out.
Its shifting better now? Its was that bad before? If it wasn't shifting good before, and you only "half" changed the fluid, I would watch closely for the half new fluid to smell burnt and turning brown.
I bet mixing 4 quarts of burnt oil to the new, instantly made the new stuff smell burnt and turn it slightly brown. Think of it this way, you add a little brown coloring to red, what happens?
8 quarts of that mobile syth. stuff costs what? 40-50 bucks?
79.99 for a full trans drain flush and fill...
