Question about 2003 Toyota RAV4
My car had an accident and was repaired, the automatic transmission fluid was drained and refilled because the technician claimed it was necessary to clean the transmission system. Since then the car ceases to accelerate after a 15 to 20 minutes drive.
I have been told by someone that a wrong fluid was used. I have now purchased the right Toyota transmission fluid but will like to know if
1. the gear box must be opened to clean the gear oil filter before refilling with the right oil?
2. Do I just drain the wrong oil and refill with the right one?
3. Will refilling the right oil stop the problem?
When it reaches its top speed of about 15 to 20 mph does it rev out or does it stay in that gear?
