Ice, no worries with the forum preference, all the forums organize stuff differently.

Generally speaking there are so many 722.xx trannys out there that it's just as meaningful in the general forum.

You've got the 99 so you can actually do the fluid change yourself, drain the pan, pull it, drain the converter, clean the pan, swap the filter, slap it back together and refill. Not too difficult a job, but the fluid is pretty pricey (US$15/lt and you need 9, the last one goes in after a start, gear cycle and then based upon the dipstick level, I usually measure what I get out and put that much back in, then do the start/gear cycle, then add as necessary).

32,000 is low miles but I'd bet the fluid is still in pretty bad shape, driving a car very little is almost as bad as driving it a lot.

Take care and enjoy the ride,

Agreeing with Greg here, please change your ATF and filter. After considerable debate on another thread, I became convinced that I was past due at 58,000 miles on mine. I had a laboratory perform a chemical analysis on my old fluid, and they confirmed it.
