Most people never change it,good job.
If it is still fairly clear and not black or burnt,leave it .
Should run for like 30,000 on a change.

SOURCE: transmission fluid change

It differs with use but for a rule of thumb you can look at the fluid on the dipstick against a white cloth and if it brown to black looking not a reddish color you should have it serviced.Either a drain and fill or a complete trans flush if it is black.Your trans will thank you

SOURCE: 2007 Toyota 4 runner transmission filter and fluid change??

at 50,000 miles there is really no need. i would wait and save up that money and do a transmission flush 7- 10 quarts of toyota f-type fluid can be costly but a flush removes all of the fluid and garnish along with any fine shavings (normal wear and tear) out of the tranny and replaces it with new clean fluid. normal intervals would be at about 80-100,000 miles. you should be able to find preventative maintenance schedules in your owners manual. if not any repair facility would have it on their computer.

SOURCE: change transmission fluid in 2004 Toyota Corolla

cool off the fluid , locate, loosen and remove the drain plug of your ATF, fully drain the oil, once fully drained up to the last drop, put back the drain plug and refill the ATF. if its a manual transaxle the procedure is the same.....hope this helps.

SOURCE: 98 toyota camry transmission service.

--- ATF QUANTITY & TOOLS--
Just more info for you. You do not want to overfill the ATF. I have the same 98 Camry 2.2L 4 cyl, it specifies for a drain & fill, it uses 2.5 qt. ATF.

The drain plug is a 10mm hex key, so you need the 10mm hex "male" to stick it in and loosen with a ratchet. Tighten with 30 ft. lb. when you are done draining.

The 4 cyl uses a filter too, you don't have to change it every time you change your ATF. Probably good to do it every 2 yr or 30K mi. You can buy the Pro-King ATF filter for this car for $11; make sure you get the one for "the 15-bolt version" transmission, as you'll need to loosen 15 bolts before you get to see the filter.


--- FLUID CHOICE ---
For cheapest way, you can buy the SuperTech Dex III from Wal-Mart for $10/gal. Or Step up some and buy the good one fro mValvoline MaxLfe Dex/Mer ATF for $18/gal.

In owner's manual it calls for Dex II or compatible Dex III. Realistically Dex II is discontinued for years, Toyota really uses the "Mobil 3309" ATF, which you can still buy some from Wal-Mart or auto part store if you care to use the OEM fluid.

My 2009 toyota corolla has a code p2757. Its related to a solenoid. how do I go about solving my problem?


well my transmission officially blew up due to the torque converter. I suggest dropping the transmission pan then taking the solenoids out and cleaning the hell out of them, drain as much trans fluid as possible and replace the gasket and filter. Replace the trans pan after putting all the solenoids back into place I also suggest using Lucas Stop Slip Trans Fix when refilling the fluid. DO NOT OVERFILL AND DO NOT UNDERFILL. Take your time on putting new good fluid in not cheap stuff. If all this doesn't work or make a change then the next step is to replace your torque converter. This in involves taking the transmission out pulling the T converter out and replacing it you also have to do a fluid change regardless even after you try changing it the first time to see if it fixed your issue. Any shavings inside the torque converter will contaminate your new fluid if the first fluid change doesn't work therefore 2 fluid changes would be necessary if you don't solve the issue the 1st time after cleaning the solenoids. Try these steps and get back to me and we will go from there. I hope this helps as a brand new transmission is 4,000 dollars. Good luck and keep me posted.

Location and access to Transmission Filter to change Trans. oil and Filter


Hi Lb,
My car is RX300 1999 and has the same problem. I changed the fluid 2 years ago after the trans slip and lost the shift. Afterwards it worked for another 2 years. But recently it doesn't work again even I change fluid and put Stop Slip additive to the trans. I was told the trans has to be rebuilt. So changing fluid and filter can help to maintain the trans for sure and can prevent problem. But if the trans has already worn a lot, it can't help at last.

Toyota Fielder is equipped with (Continuous Velocity Transmission) CVT. Better to replace the CVT oil every 100,000 Km. The recommended oil is Toyota Genuine CVT Fluid TC with part number 08886-02105 4 Litres. Requires inspection after every subsequent 40,000 Km under normal conditions and 25000 Km under severe conditions.

My 2004 toyota sienna transmission was replace 4 months ago and now the low gear is getting stuck and change the oil that was very dark and there no change. Thank you


Dark transmission fluid is an indication that your new
trans has been slipping

You better use your warantee quick, for another new one

Trans Fluid changes have nothing to do with fixing a thing,
you lucky it didn't make it slip,that's usually what happens

It only removes heat & that is why almost all trans
fail,because no one changes fluids every 3 years

Think you got a different trans & no one diagnosed the
reason the first on failed,unless you never changed the fluid

How often do u have to change your tranmission oil and engine oil, and which type is recomended( toyota corolla 06)


its in the owners manual about suggested change times but as a mechanic of 27 years i have seen hundreds of failures due to dirty trans fluid. having it changed yearly is a good investment considering a new or used transmission runs about $1200.00 to$ 2800.00.

Frequency to changing transmission fluid on 2003 Corolla


I'm not sure about Toyota's specific recommendation but when I ran my service station, we changed trans fluid at the 50,000 to 60,000 mile range. This covered most manufacturer's requirements at the time. Hope this helps.
