I have done the drain and fill procedure many times ,,,several times on each car over a period of six months , to gradually renew the fluid,,,
I never had a problem,,,
I would recommend you have it done ,including a new filter, pan gasket and new electrical connector bushing ,,then drain and refill the fluid again a month later.

|rudeney||If there are "deposits" that "break off", then that's a huge problem and the transmission is already toast. What can happen is that the friction surfaces on the clutches wear over time. Particulate in dirty fluid can actually help the clutches grab better. When you clean all that out, the worn clutch surfaces may not "grab" as well with the clean, slippery new fluid. You then get some slipping. Now, at 100K miles, the clutches in your transmission should be just fine. At 200K, I might be more concerned, but then again, a 722.6 that has 200K miles on the original fluid and filter probably doesn't have much life left in it anyhow.|

He did a fairly thorough inspection and test drive of the car, ran the Xentry DAS with me (all clear) so I was pretty satisfied at that point but I will inquire about the CPS that Benzyle recommended as there is no record of that being replaced in the past.

Valeo radiators in cars built after Sept, 2003 are revised and are ok ,,, but if before that ,,,maybe ,,,but like Keyhole said ,,save yourself $600 ,,,
and if there is no record of a new crank position sensor having been fitted in the past ,,then spend some of that $600 on a new one ,, ,,,replace it with a new Bosch ..
they all seem to fail at some point and will leave you stranded when it does.
Replace it and you will be good for at least 12 years.
Nice car ,,,enjoy !

If it IS a factory-fitted Valeo and it has lasted 100k miles, I would leave it alone. If it was going to fail, it would have failed a long time ago!
