Default How much longer?

Changed transmission fluid at 200K. Last change was at 150K. How many miles more can I expect from looking at these pics?

Automatic transmissions are like women: they can be perfectly lovely and the best thing ever one minute, then have you emptying your wallet and cursing everything the next.

You really won't be able to tell a whole lot from your pictures. Just take care of it as best you can.... at least women you can usually bribe with chocolate.

Well as they say, if it has tits, wheels, or circuits there will be problems.

A cool transmission is a happy transmission. Some sort of after market tranny cooler would probably help it live longer.

That filter looks really dirty. If it still shifts ok, you may have quite a bit of life in it. On the other hand lots of these have failed or been replaced before 200k (like mine).
