Default Transmission Drain @300,000 miles..

As you know I am a brand new owner of a lexus gs300 with over 300,000 miles.. Not I took it to a transmission place yesterday. I wanted to do a drain and fill with changing the filter (it possible).. Well they tell me the fluid was NEVER changed and they wont do it.. They said there is no metal in the fluid and it is not burned.. FOR REAL??? SAME FLUID FOR OVER 300,000 MILES.. IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE???... what do yall guys think.. thank you.

They said the fluid was the original and if they change it the clean fluid will wash away the varnish and create a clearance that will make the Trans slip and eventually break. I am confused

i would call the nearest "Lexus" dealer and speak to the service department.... Maybe he's thinking you wanted a complete flush...

I just dropped my pan, cleaned the hell out of the filter, sprayed out all the solenoids and what not, cleaned up the magnets obviously and all the gunk, which to be honest, really wasn't NEARLY HALF as bad as you'd think.... Let the car sit over night which drained a total of 4qt's, then I put the pan back on with everything nice and clean, added 4 quarts, drained the rest from the cooler return line into a sparklets 5 gallon bottle, adding exactly how much ever came out in as it drained. Had a buddy **** the car off a few times so the filling could keep up with what I was draining until "ruby red" fresh Trans oil was shooting out. Swear to you the dam car doesn't feel the same what so ever... Can't even describe.... Power that just was never there, or hasn't been there in ages, shifts from 1st to second issue:Gone. Solved everything for me, am so dam happy I chose to do it. I've had a flush done before though, and btw now I'm at 170,000. I'll let you know if the tranny blows any time soon. Don't count on hearing from me!

Has anyone's tranny here actually gone out? I still haven't heard of that happening, they seem to be pretty bulletproof transmissions, I had mine flushed a few months back at the dealer after it hadn't been changed in 90k I was worried, but no slipping at all
