Contact your local dealership or look at your owners manul and see the exact time that fluids need to be replaced. since you car is ownly 2 years old the local dealership should be able to get you a printout of the cars maintenance schedule

I have a 2012 Rav4. I had my oil changed and I was told that my transmission fluid is black and smells burnt.I called Toyota I was told that my car's transmission never needed flushed.Is this true ?


It is a myth that trans mission oil never needs changing
All oils oxidise under extreme heat conditions ( and transmission oil reaches very hot temperatures) and bearings, bands and clutches do wear
again flushing is a general term incorrectly used
A transmission oil change generally removes the oil from the pan area but leaves 1/2 the torque converter with contaminated oil
That in turns re-contaminates the fresh oil
Flushing on the other hand is expensive as it require a considerable amount of new oil to do the job It is done with the engine running and fresh oil is drawn in as the old oil is pumped out
so you have to decide to have it changed or flushed as the difference can be in excess of $200.00 dollars BUT the results are also very different
Many manufacturers run sealed transmissions , for the sole purpose of preventing DIY people from putting in the wrong oil and so causing a problem in the transmission
remember that you most probably have a CV transmission
Constant velocity) which utilizers a drive belt between 2 pulleys and requires a special transmission oil as well
The transmission performs similar to the old automatic transmissions but is vastly different in internal construction
Normal period for a change ( depending on speed and operating conditions ) is 60,000miles so talk with an accredited specialist transmission shop to get an idea as to what is a good idea on oil changes

Should I change automatic transmission oil on my 2004 kia sedona?


forget the friends advice
automatic oil should be light tan or cherry red depending on the brand of oil used
the oil should be changed around the 60,000 klm mark and done by accredited transmission shops
If you have a CV-transmission that requires a special oil (not auto transmission oil as they are not automatic transmissions --they have a belt running between variable pulleys which gives the impression that it is automatic but it is not)

Should I change the transmission fluid on my 2005 dodge stratus?It has120.000 miles.Heard it can cause problems?fluid is clear.Mech thought he smelled slight burnt smell I didnt. shiftsok 1st notable.


oil has additives it it that over time deteriorate so a transmission oil change at 120.000miles would be appropriate
smelling the oil and detecting an odor would be a matter of experience and recognizing the smell
you have options
you can take a sample of the oil and have it analyzed in a oil testing laboratory to see if it is still good ,
change it at a transmission specialist shop ( might fix the notable 1st problem
or let it go and trust that problems will not start to appear
I know that some manufacturers do not recommend changing transmission oil but fresh oil is best for a reliable transmission

Transmission oil change


I take it you are talking auto transmission. Un do the drain plug in the box sump or if you do not have one remove the sump. replace filter in the sump . replace the sump with a new gasket and refill the sump. IF there is nothing wrong with the transmission and you only want to change the oil the best practice is to take it to a auto transmission shop where they can change the oil with the engine running and this changes the oil in the torque converter as well giving you a complete oil change. IT is more expensive as more oil is used but it changes all the oil and not just a part of the system. If your are talking manual, then remove the drain plug in the bottom of the gear box and when all the oil is out replace the plug tightly and remove the filler plug in the side of the box. Add oil until it runs out of the filler hole and when it stops replace the filler plug tightly. Use the correct grade of oils in both cases.

While i was doing off road driving a warnning light (a/t oil temp) turn on, i looked underneath the car and i found oil leak drop after drop, not too sure now should I change the transmition oil and filter...


Change the transmission fluid and filter. The light says fluid temp. is high, so you may have some burnt fluid-deadly for transmissions. Drop the trans. pan and look for metal shavings-too much will indicate failure of transmission parts. If not too much, you may be alright with fluid and filter change.
Stop the leak,. make sure it is trans. fluid, not motor oil. If motor oil, stop the leak and change oil and filter. I would do the transmission regardless, since the light came on.

I have hyundai sonnata 2006 4 cylinder. it has just completed 100000km.should i changet transmission oil now.


The transmission oil starts breaking down at 30000miles. Most car dealers change the transmission oil and filter at the second scheduled maintenance service at 60000miles. Changing the transmiosion oil is an insurance for the transmission. Make sure to use the specific transmission oil for your car.

Should I have the oil in transmission changed?


I would not go by the oil change company recommendation.
It's much better to go by the car manufacturer's recommendation. Look in your owner's manual for the recommended time/mileage to change the transmission oil and filter.

How to replace transmission oil


to replace the oil on your transmission is not that hard but as a auto technician I should advice you that if on any vehicle the transmission oil has never been changed and is a high millage vehicle by changing the oil the transmission can slip or go neutral you should take your vehicle to a transmission shop and have the oil changed there with special oil changing machine that would clean the transmission and converter while it replaces the old oil and if there's a risk on damaging the transmission then they will tell you before changing the oil on your transmission and if they change the oil and any problems should happen then they are responsible for your transmission but if you insist to change it your self by removing the oil pan on the transmission you let all the oil out some of these Japanese vehicles have a drain plug you can take the brain plug out then remove the oil pan once you remove the oil pan then you'll see the transmission filter with socket wrench using a 10 mm socket remove the filter and the same way replace it with the new filter don't over tork the screws tighten to 15 lb. then remove the old oil pan gasket and make sure by doing all this process everything is extra clean, clean out oil pan and replace gasket and install oil pan then after you finish pour in 3 qt. of good quality transmission oil then turn on engine and take the shifter to R then D and last N and with engine on check the level and add as needed good luck
