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.

The best way is to have the tranny flushed in order to get all the fluid out of the valve body and the torque converter.

Car transmissions should be flushed at least once every two years, that's what most car manufactures say and mechanics

Change your transmission filter and have the trans flushed.
