No, do not get the transmission flushed. Just have the fluid and filter changed in the transmission. Also use a high mileage engine oil.

Go to a shop that does a transmission fluid replacement and not a flush and get it serviced. I would use good old Motorcraft oil in it as the manufacturer specified in the recommended grade.

Thank you very much for the quick answer I was a bit nervous cuz I'v seen a lot people saying their transmission start acting up right after they serviced it .
