Maintenance is often the most over looked aspect of a good working transmission. The number one reason transmissions and other vehicle components fail is the lack of preventative maintenance. It pays to perform preventative maintenance on your transmission about every 20,000-30,000 miles.
Changing the fluid and filter by removing the pan from a transmission then completely flushing the systyem is best way to remove all contaminated fluid from the vehicle. If only a flush is preformed the filter may still be holding damaging contaminates that could harm the perfomace or longevity of your transmission. Note that not all transmissions have excisable filters.

4X4 & DRIVELINE
Many trucks now come equiped with All-Wheel drive system. This system applies power to wheels with the most traction using clutches and solenoids creating more heat, so fluid should be changed at more frequent intervals. Dealer recommendations for fluid change should be followed.
Trucks with 4X4 high and 4X4 low only do not have wearing clutches, however they still have many moving parts that need lubrication at all times. Fluid should be checked on a regular basis and changed about every 50,000 miles.
The front and rear differentials are how power is moved from the drive shafts out to the wheels. Differentials have six bearings that need constant lubrication to insure that premature wear and excusive heat are not created. Differential grease should be changed about every 50,000 miles.
