Question about 2006 Toyota Sienna
This transmission uses lifetim WS (world standard) trans fluid however most dfealers recommend changing it at about 100,000 miles. Replacing the fluid requires special tools and procedure so this is best left to leave this to someone who knows Toyotas to avoid possible transmission damage

The drain plug is on the bottom of the transmission. Its torqued to 49 nM.
1. Remove tranny oil pan drain plug
2. Drain old fluid (roughly 2-4 quarts)
3. Reinstall drain plug.
4. Measure amount drained in a 99 cent orange juice pitcher from Walmart
5. Pour back the same amount drained using Toyota Type T-IV fluid (available in 1 quart bottles from a Toyota dealer.
6. Start engine and shift slowly through all the gears ending in Park.
7. Check fluid level on the dipstick. Add fluid, if necessary, to bring the level to a point inbetween the COLD and HOT marks on the dipstick.
8. Go for a 20 minute drive and recheck fluid level. Add fluid, if necessary, to bring the level up to,
but not beyond, the upper half of the HOT range on the dipstick.
As in 1973, NO FLUSHING is needed and NO FILTER REPLACEMENT is needed, NO PAN REMOVAL is needed. As, as in 1973 todays Toyotas have a metal mesh filter screen that doesn't ever get clogged except in rare cases of transmission operational abuse, including failure to ever change the fluid for 150,000 miles or more.

you only get about half of the fluid when u change-the rest of the old stays in the torque converter--since its so dirty u cud doit again until it clears--do not flush it with a machine-it will disable it cause dirt will get into the valve body and become stuck
