2002 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 6 Cyl 4.0L

Transmissions & Drivetrains

Is it possible for my automatic transmission to be damaged by flushing and refilling my transmission fluid and filter?

I was told by a dealer service center that if I had my transmission flused and refilled that it could possbly damage my transmission due to my Explorer having 132K miles on the transmission and motor.
