Default Changing Transmission Fluid in 2002 Honda Civic

My civic has 145,000 miles on it. I bought it used at 118,000 and have no idea when the last time the transmission fluid was changed. I'm thinking about changing it just to be on the safe side.

Is this a big chore? I change the oil and oil filter myself every 3000 miles and thats a breeze.

Is there a tranny fluid filter?

I have been told that AT trans flushes are ridiculous in terms of labor and cost. They are not as easy as a flush with a MT.

1.9 quarts for MT and something like 7 qts for AT. I could be wrong though.

My mechanic told me to have the dealership do mine because Hondas are extremely finicky when it comes to their tranny fluid. Also he said if its not slipping or slamming then its better to not even mess with it.

It is easy to change it if its automatic. When I did it all i did was drop the tranny pan and drained all the fluid. Changed the filter in there as well then take a long funnel put it in where you check your transmission level then pour it in there.
