DIY. It's real easy if you have access to a lift. I did mine about 2 wks ago. I used RP's Synchromax for my manual tranny. There are 2 plugs: use aratchet and remove the bottom plug to drain the trannyandput back then remove the top plug and refill with 3 qts untilit starts dripping out. You'll probably save$200 if you DIY.

I'm not sure a flush is going to fix a slipping problem
