I get the argument that a flush wouldn't clean the filter. Similarly, a
transmission service including the filter only replaces 40% or so of the fluid.
So, I suppose if one would like to do the best thing it would be to do a
filter change AND a flush.

Quote of the day, it's like cleaning your air filter by driving on a clean

filter, is like driving on a clean road and hoping to unstop a clogged air
filter. When a transmission filter becomes restricted, damage occurs in the

restrict the filter. A flush CANNOT clean the filter. A proper transmission
service includes filter replacement on transmissions with replaceable filters.
