They tell everybody that- however, your car probably does need it- get a mechanic in a pro garage to do it- better safe than sorry-

If you decide to have the cooling system and transmission serviced, DON'T let them FLUSH either!! You'll be asking for trouble!! Personally I'd leave it alone if you're not having any issues. If it works, don't fix it!! Especially on an older model vehicle!! HTH. -Jim
