some people will say every 75,000 miles, but if you have gone past that then you shouldn't change it you self. you should take if to a shop and have the fluid power changed. generaly what happens is, if when the transmission gets older it has alot of crud on the gears and if you change it your self you could run the risk of the crud falling down into the gears and tear the gears up. I have 238,000 miles on my car and have never changed the trany fluid. I would recommend power flushing the transmission every 40,000 miles. The fluid additives wear out over time and need to be replaced. Check out the BG website. I powerflush my tranny every 30K miles, as I feel it is cheap insurance and I want this car to go 175K before I dispose of it. I am now at 133K and it shifts perfectly.

It is advisable that you check with your local mechanic as to when you should get your transmission fluid changed in your car. Ideally, it should be changed every 3 years or so if the car is driven aggressively.

Automatic transmission fluid should be changed according to the manufacturer's suggestions. Many manufacturers suggest having the fluid changed at every 100,000 miles.

It is unlikely that the transmission would fail after a fluid change. The transmission filter should be changed at the same time. If it was not changed at the same time it could have caused the issue.

Usually you should change your transmission fluid after 60,000 miles, but to be safe you should check it after 30,000 miles and if it looks like it is low I would add some fluid.

The 1999 Olds Intrigue does have a dipstick. Use a funnel to add fluid as needed into the dipstick tube.

The automatic transmission has a total fluid capacity of just less than six quarts and you should use Dex/Merc ATF or Mercon ATF. The transmission fluid should be changed every 30k miles.

It really should be changed every 30,000 miles. It is cheaper than a transmission overhaul.

The transmission fluid can only be added/changed by a dealer or someone with the proper tools to check the fluid level. There is no dipstick for the transmission. I have 89000 km on my LS & am wondering at what mileage to get the fluid changed.
