Question about 1996 Toyota 4Runner

Wrong Transmission oil

I recently purchased a 1996 Toyota Estima Lucinda with 40,000 miles. I checked the transmission oil today and noticed it was a quart low. I added a quart of Castrol Import Multi-Vehicle ATF. On the front of the oil container it read for Toyota vehicals.

Just before I reinserted the transmission oil dipstick I noticed it read Dextron 2. The transmission oil I added isn't Dextron 2. Do I need to do a complete oil change?

You dont need a complete oil change.
the other oil will also lubricate, so the oil you have put on, is as good as the oil who was there before

How do you check 2012 camry transmission fluid level


I have a 2012 Toyota Camry. The gearbox is a sealed until. Recently I have investigated about getting it serviced, Mine has just come out of warranty, Toyota dealer is asking $442.00 for service, after speaking with a number of transmission specialists they recommend 40,000 service intervals. Costing approximately $330.00 just ensure your transmission service technician is using the Toyota recommended oil which is "WS"
World standard and nothing different.

Hi, I own Toyota Emina Estima TD permanent


There may be more to it.. Transmission- P.T.O(Front wheels)-Rear Differential(Rear wheels). Or may have Transmission-Transfercase drives front differential(Front wheels) and rear differential(Rear wheels). So if one was rebuilt there should still be another that is still the root of the problem. Find out what exactly was rebuilt.

How do I tune up my 2004 GA?? It has 40,000 miles... what all needs to be changed/checked?


You need to go to a dealer or a certified mechanic. If you don't know already. Usually these will be the things you have to purchase, plugs, wires, air filter, fuel filter, oil filter & oil, you will need to flush the radiator and the transmission.
