I just purchased a 2006 Toyota Camry XLE automatic with 167,000 miles on it. I don’t know if the previous owner changed the transmission fluid regularly, and I wanted to know if I should change it or leave it be for the rest of its life. I read in some places that changing the transmission fluid in an older car could cause transmission problems. The car currently has no signs of transmission problems, and I want the car to last as long as possible. I checked the transmission fluid by wiping the transmission dipstick on a white paper towel. The fluid looked like a translucent grayish brown with a pink tint to it. Should I change the transmission fluid or leave it be?
