If I were you, I would consider a "transmission flush" be performed. Just replacing the fluid (drain the pan) will leave about 3 quarts of dirty oil in the trans system. There is no need to spend the money for a filter, the filters that Toyota uses are more like a fine mesh screen, and do not ever need replaced, like domestic cars. A complete transmission flush is exactly what you need.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance.

Transmission dragging


Hi Liz, It could be a number of problems, most often its the fluid as well as the transmission filter.
VW can charge up to 350 to do this job,because the transmission fluid is highly refined oil almost to the point of mineral oil.
I highly recommend that whoever if indeed the fluid is dated;changes the transmission fluid that you use onlt Vwbrand fluid in it.
There is a oil cooler that can sometimes get corroded after time,this could also cause the transmission to be sluggish.
but if you need a good starting point I would put my money on the fluid change,Some People recomend that the fluid be replaced as well as filter at every 40,000 miles.
ps. the good news is my eurovan's transmission just turned 200,000 miles.keep the fluid clean,keep the fluid cool you should get the same.Gary

How will i know that the transmission oil is due for change


Normal maintenance for a transmission is required every 30,000 - 50,000 miles. Fluid change should be in there as well. If your fluid looks brownish blackish I would have it changed with a new filter kit. If it's a high mileage vehicle, a conditioner wouldn't hurt either.

Is is appropriate and/or necessary to change the transmission fluid on a Toyota Tundra 2004 that has 108,000 miles?


If your automatic transmission fluid has not previously been changed, it would be a good idea to change the fluid at this point. With 100,000 miles on the transmission, it would also be a good time to drop the transmission pan and change the internal filter, too. That's a messy job, and one that I have started paying people to do--good thing you only do it about every 75,000-100,000 miles.

Ordinarily, it's a pretty good idea to change the transmission fluid every 50-60,000 miles, especially if you do a lot of start and stop driving or especially if you use your vehicle to tow anything. Fresh transmission fluid will probably help your truck shift a bit more smoothly. More importantly, the fresh dose of lubricants and the like will reduce wear on the transmission bands. I'd rather change my fluid more often than have to rebuild my transmission. With proper maintenance, though, your transmission should last well past 150,000 miles; I've seen Toyota transmissions with well over 200,000 miles on them with fluid changes as their only maintenance. Some have made it close to 300,000 miles with only fluid and filter changes, but I wouldn't count on that for the average transmission.

When are you supposed to havetransmission fluid change in 2002 chevy prizm. Just bought it used with 84000 on it. Not sure if ever changed before and is brownish in color. Brother in law told me not to...


if brownish in color leave it be for draining or flushing it will allow all bulk particles that are worn away from the clutch facing to be gone for ever That will case the trans to slip or wear out before its time

Is it good to flush a transmission after 220,000 miles?


NO it's not good, just give the transmission a normal transmission fluid and filter change. Flushing the transmission fluid may loosen up any thing that is keeping the O rings and seals from leaking and flushing out the transmission may cause it the fail much sooner then expected. My transmission on my 96 jimmy has over 365,000 miles and still going strong. You may want to replace the boost valve to ensure your getting the proper transmission line pressure, as the transmission get's older, the boost valve weakens causing the line pressure to drop. As the line pressure drops, the transmission starts to slip wearing out your clutch packs. I replace mine every service and the boost valve is not that expensive and can be replaced when the transmission pan is dropped. Good luck and hope this helps answer your question.
