    Transmission oil is like any other oil and it will break down. Follow the recomendations in your owners manual. Change the oil, filter and the pan gasket.

    are you doing it your self ?

    if no i say yes.

    if you love to get dirty and love working on your can and love a sence of achevment i still say yes.



    you will need at lot of AFT (depending on the size of your trany and torque converter) you will unfortunetly drain most of it.



    and you will need a new trany pan seal.



    if you want i'll walk you threw it.

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.

How many miles should 2006 hhr transmission fluid be changed


According to the owner's manual:
Owners manual says change at 50,000, 100,000 and 150,000 miles if you are driving under one of these conditions:
1) in heavy city traffic where the outside temp regularly reaches 90 or higher
2) in hilly or mountainous terrain
3) when doing frequent towing
4) uses such at a taxi,police,or delivery service

if you do not use you vehicle under any of there conditions ,the fluid and the filter do not require changing per GM.

That being said, I've seen one come into a shop working fine, but being hugely past its "service by" mileage, needing rebuilt after having a fluid change and filter. The old fluid is so filled with particles of the clutch packs that changing it out causes the transmission to slip like mad, the particles were acting like the friction material in the clutch packs.

1995 TOYOTA 4 RUNNER HAS A DELAYED HARD SHIFT BUT WHEN YOU DRIVE IT AND IT WARMS UP IT SHIFTS FINE WHAT IS WRONG


Service your transmission. Change the fluid and filter every 24,000 miles. The owners manual doesn't call for it, but they want to sell you another car at 100,000 miles. I have had to replace a few transmissions following the manufacturer's instructions before I decided to ignore that part.

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.

How often do I need to change the transmission fluid on a 1999 Toyota 4 Runner?


I use 50,000 miles as a start. If I see burnt fluid or detect shifting problems or have to start adding fluid more often I go ahead and have the Filter and Fluid changed. A lot of locations will want to use a back flush system to flush the transmission and refill it with Synthetic fluid. You Transmission uses an actual filter and not a filter screen so do not let them do that. You will regret it if you do. In most cases, if you aren't experiencing shifting problems and your fluid is not burned, a brownish color instead of Red, you should be fine. Just make sure the level is correct.

I was told the fluid was dirty on both. I had the transmission flushed and changed in late 2008 and the coolant changed in 2009. Is this okay for them to tell me it's already dirty?


dirty???trans fluid should be changed if car has overheated and fluid is brown and smells and is burnt-or -mileage of 50,000 [to 100,000 miles some manufactures] average change and filter is about every 60,000 ----as to coolant average life is 5 years unless problem such as overheating or somehow got contaminated so if u didnt put on 50,000 miles in little over a year and have not had any type of over heat problem dont see why to have unnecessary service done to vehicle ------if u look in u owners manual it advises at what intervals [mileage/time] to do service on ur vehicle

When do I change the transmission fluid ? 2008 Camry LE


The Camry's transmission fluid is meant to be changed every 50,000 miles. At least, that's what Toyota says; it is possible to go more than 50,000 miles between changes but I would advise against it. Your car is almost 2 years old, so unless you are driving over 25,000 miles a year you shouldn't be needing a transmission fluid change just yet.

My overdrive lightis flashing on my 1991 toyota 4 runner.


means it's going out or the transmission oil will need to be changed, check the transmission fluid if it is brown and smells likes onions have the fluid changed and the filter, this may not fix it but you may get lucky, if it's the band or clutch assembly you will have to rebuild transmission.
