Automatic Transmission Fluid Change

So, this is a two part question:

A: I have a 92 Nissan Sentra w/auto transmission. the chilton manual says draining the transmission fluid is as easy as removing the plug at the bottom, closing it and refilling it. is that true?

B: Im going on a trip to colorado in the summer. can my car handle it or has your car handled it? 1000 miles one way. it only has 85k on the car. raidiator has been flushed, new brakes, new tires, belts, sparks, air, sensors, wires, battery, oil.

thank you!

1. Yes, if you are not replacing the filter, just drain what is in the pan and refill with new fluid. Doesn't get all of the fluid (next to impossible to get it all anyway) but it is sufficient.

2. I wouldn't hesitate to drive my '93 1500 miles or more and it has over 176k miles. You seem to have taken care of it, so I wouldn't worry about it making it. Never hurts to have a stash of tools, qt. of oil and maybe some water.

Have fun.
