A fluid change may be a good Idea. Fluid does "wear out".
Viscosity stabilizers break down and fluid thins out, and problems arise.
You might change it and drain the torque converter if it has a plug. Otherwise change it, drive it a few miles, and drop the pan and change it again.
Also, go to for other info on swaps etc.
Fact is stranger than Fiction
