If your car was flushed at 102,000 then why would you do another one 4,000 miles later. I think the dealer recommends every 15,000 or so. Well atleast that is what it is for my car......

otsb is correct .. if it only has been 4k miles ,, you DO NOT need to do anything with tranny fluid for at least another 15-25k miles and then just drain and refill
