Just wondering if anyone could shed some light on a tranny flush vs a change. I have a '97 XJ w/ 110k on it, and its in great shape, mechanically and physically. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

i have never believed in flushing it only loosens shavings and particals that will cause issues later.

i would just change the fluid

i would just change it , you could also drop the pan and change the filter and clean out all the gunk in the pan then put in some new fluid .

The flush has its advantages, it flushes the cooler and the torque converter.
Which a pan drain and fill only changes the fluid in the pan and no where
else. I just did a 1991 Mercury with only 21,000 and never had a tranny service. The previous owner said the tranny sliped but it was found that the tranny had shuuter in it . Serviced the filter and used 4 gallons of fluid
and the tranny works perfect. Most shutter problems are the torque converter.
