Question Whole system flush questions

I have a 09 G6 3.5 V6 with coming up at 60k miles. Car fax shows that nothing was ever reported being done to it. So I am thinking about having the works done to it....what exactly is the works lol?

I know there is transmission fluid flush/replacement, coolant flush, power steering flush, and oil change. But what exactly is the difference between a flush and a complete change? Which should I do? Just a flush or a complete change?

Garage
the difference is getting ALL of the old fluids out or not. with a tranny flush somtimes shops take the short cut and just drop the pan and refill what they took out, when theres a bunch of old fluid still in all of the lines and what not. and its now or never with your tranny flush, if you wait to long you can cause damage changing ur trans fluid

Transmission may overheat and burn out. It all depends on how your drive.
