I've heard similar things. It may be chancy. But if the tranny is acting up, it may be time to try it as doing nothing can only be headed for bigger problems.

You need to change fluid and filter at your earliest possible chance or you will lose your box. If you need instructions get back to me.

Also a differential oil change while your at it this will also cause whining.
