Changing burnt fluid,not good??

OK heres a debate I'm having concerning my fiance's newest wonder wagon.When ya got a high milage transmission(145K to be axact)that is shifting fine but the fluid is yellow/brownish and theres that graphite looking,band dust floating in it,is it a good idea to change the fluid and filter??
I've been told that if its operating fine it may be best to leave it allone??
I've saved a number of old TH350 trannys back when,but were talking FWD tin and plastic cars now.
So.........too filter and fluid or not to filter and fluid........that is thee question?
