I would change the filters for sure, but before I changed, I would take a sample with the transmission at operation temp and send to J G Lube Services for analysis. When you get the results then you can change the filters and also the fluid if need be. I'm guessing the fluid will test fine.

Test it with our JGOA22 test kit. It's probably in good shape. Go to www.jglubricantservices.com/online_store.html. I'll be able to tell you for sure if it's still good.
