Automatic transmission maintenance

A thought just occurred to me: I haven’t paid the slightest attention to my transmission.

Illustration for article titled Automatic transmission maintenance

Now I did check the fluid level after I bought the car. It also seemed pink on the dipstick. I assumed the guy I bought it off of must have changed it, I figured I would still do new fluid and filter for sanity’s sake. I have not had the chance to do that yet.

That being said, when I go to do my engine, is there any maintenance items (aside from the above) that I should take a look at for the transmission? That would be a GM turbo 350 for those of you wondering. It shifts fine, and due to the complexity and expense a rebuild for shits and giggles is completely out of the question. I don’t plan on touching this box full of magic and demons if I don’t have to, but it seems odd that my engine needs all kind of refurbishing but my tranny doesn’t.
