Preventative/routine maintenance is very important if you plan on owning your vehicle and wanting to get maximum life from it.
Lastly, and in my opinion, E-10 is crap. I haven't heard one good thing about it. Stick to 100% gas if you can. I carry some Lucas ethanol fuel treatment in my car for when I have no choice but to buy that crap "fuel". Lucky for my 100% gas is easy to purchase in Oklahoma City.

Leaving no old fluid behind... I wish the converters were like the old ones that actually had plugs..... But that would be to easy. :-)

But if you were to bring it there and tell them to change filter too or do it before you bring it it does help tremendously... Because it not only get all of the old fluid out of the torque converter it also cleans out any particles that are stuck in coolers, lines, etc...... To do it right IMO you need both...

But, I have gone to them for a trans flush, and they are replacing my support with the diff bushing and it is not work, just starting to crack, and they are also replacing my power accessory plug that I melted.
