I change my oil and oil filter every 3k to 3. To maintain their cars and their budgets, many Infiniti G35 owners have decided to drain and fill their transmission fluid themselves. If it ain't broke, don't fix it! I always feel like the flushing will remove particles keeping the transmission together. This could shorten their car's lifespan because transmission fluid is essential to maintaining the transmission system. But also over time and mileage, fluids in in the transmission get old, contaminated, and what not. Insert the fill plug and torque down per the manual.

Good thing I have a warranty! They also put in a new clutch and flywheel free of labor charge i just bought a 2004 a few weeks ago and i too just got back from getting a free flywheel and clutch.
At most dealerships mechanics can show you oil pans of failed engines with sludge a couple of inches thick for those that thought they could go 10, 15, or even 20k miles without changing oil because they used some expensive oil. I prefer draining the transmsioon on a more routin basis than flushing. Came to a stop traffic light suddenly the engine roared and the car took off with full speed.

Disconnect the negative terminal from the battery 10 wrench. I also change the air and cabin filters regularly. I cannot quite understand why manual transmission and differential fluid needs changing unless there is some sort of a problem? You'll get as many varied opinions on fluids as there are products, so do your research and think logically. So I returned it to the dealer and they said that the trans needed to be replaced!
