    once upon a time I had a 2001 LS with 178K on it and the trans went out. I put a used (80K) transmission in it and then sold it shorty after. I know the car had high miles but I am still concerned with these transmissions not having the best track record from what I recall seeing, and since they are not the smoothest thing I have ever driven.

    I just want to make sure that I keep up on my maintenance not only on the engine, suspension, and so on, but the transmission as well.

    My question to you all is:
    -what do you do to your transmission and what milage intervals?
    -Do you do any additives, or anything people should look for, etc.
    -Do it your self or have it done?

    Ya a fluid and filter is planned soon. How do you check the solenoids. What do you look for? Cant say I have ever had to check any before.
