Generally for "severe service" (normal stop-and-go short trip driving) an automatic transmission should be drained, the filter replaced and refilled every 25,000 miles. On most light vehicles it is rather involved to replace the fluid in the torque converter. You normally only replace what drains out when you take the pan off to replace the filter. If done every 25,000 miles almost all the fluid will eventually be replaced after several changes.

How often should the transmission fluid in an automatic 1992 Mazda protege dx be changed?

I'm not an expert on this subject, but I had a mechanic recently tell me that your transmission fluid should be flushed every 30,000 miles. Good transmission fluid should be a semi-transparent pinkish color. If you notice that it is discolored, dark, or has dark particles in it it probably needs to be flushed. You can always add fluid if there is room but this will only temporarily fix the problem since your transmission cycles the fluid and reuses it. Hope this helps! Chris

How do you tell if there is water in the transmission and what is the fastest and cheapest way to remove it?

It will be a PINK color when it should be a pretty RED color. You will have to have the transmission flushed out at a transmission shop and the fluid and filter changed too. Then you need to find out HOW the water got in it in the first place.
