no? it says in the original manual change the trans fluid every 15,000 miles if the car is mainly driven under one or more of these conditions:

in heavy city traffic where the outside temp is regulary reaches 90f or higher
in hilly or mountanious terrain
frequent trailer pulling
uses such as found in taxi police car,or delievery service.

to answer that is no to the above maybe stop and go traffic but thats normal...and as for the weather its always changing cold to warm now so i dunno what to do? im in chicago... it says if you do not use your car under any of these conditions change both the fluid and filter every 100,000 miles.... so should i change it at the 100,000 mark? cause i dunno when it was last changed?

yes. personally i would change fluid and filter,then i would take it to a reliable facility and get a transmission flush done...filter change only gets out about 4 quarts.a flush will clean trans all the way through,and will improve shifting ,too.

For sure change the fluid and filter, this is the life of a transmission.
