Most every automatic transmission I know of, wants the filter and the fluid replaced every now and then. (like about, every 50,000 miles, if memory serves correctly) This is done from below the car by removing the transmission pan. It's a messy job, as there isn't a drain plug. You have to loosen the bolts gradually so one corner of the pan is lower than the rest and let the fluid leak out. I've done it once. Never again. Take it to the shop for a filter/flud change!
