Chevrolet Corvette: Hi, I went and checked out that 93 vette

Resolved Question:

Hi, I went and checked out that 93 vette w/8000 miles on her. Very clean drives very well. the documentation shows very little in the way of general service. Besides oil changes should there have been any fluid changes done in the last 20 years? or is it based on mileage and the fluids last that long without a problem? thanks

Hey Tim, when I talked to you about the 93 vette with the 20 yr old trans fluid, you said to have it changed but not flushed, i am curious why no flush?


Also why would there be a few bubbles on the atf dipstick?


thanks

Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 9 months ago.
you dont want to flush,,because this may move debris in the transmission into the valve body..no needto fklush,,just replace the filter..
the bubbles may be from having cataminants in the fluid,maybe some water
thanks
