45 degrees?! This is getting stranger and stranger. I don't blame any 20 year old truck for having trouble launching in reverse on a slope like that. I admire whoever got a building permit for a driveway that steep! If the ATF isn't low or bubbly or burnt, I would go against what I believe in and pay a professional mechanic to give the rig an hour of diagnostic attention so you know where you stand before throwing parts and fluids at it.....just my .02

This is a complete and total myth, and it's absolutely silly to imply that dirty old fluid that has lost most it's hydroscopic properties and has become noticeably thickened from all the abrasive particulate suspended within is somehow better for your trans than fresh, new fluid that's free of debris. If that was true we would just recycle ATF indefinitely and never change it out.

I highly doubt it's anywhere near 45* - maybe a 45% gradient, but not 45 degrees. That's a 100% gradient.

I'm going to agree with Devbot here. A couple of drain and fills aren't going to hurt anything.
