Low Automatic Transmission Fluid in 2009 Toyota Corolla
After putting about 10,000 miles on my new Corolla, it was discovered that my automatic transmission fluid was one quart low. It was assumed that it was this way from the factory. Could my transmission have been degraded due to the low oil?

Did you get it looked at by a professional? If your water pump went out, it could be something else in the cooling system, not the transmission, that is making the noise.
If your car was a Kia or similar brand, I'd say it's not worth it. Because it's a Toyota, you should be able to get it working and drive it for a long time. I think it's worth it.
The auto transaxle/differential fluid and filter should be changed every 30,000 miles or 24 months. The transaxle fluid and differential lubricant use the same Dextron III automatic transmission fluid. If you have a three speed automatic transaxle, the transaxle differential has a separate lubricant supply that should be checked every 15,000 miles or every 12 months. By the way........ see if there is a Half Price Books or other used book store in or near your town. I find used repair manuals like Hayes or Chiltons for $8.00 or less all the time. Hope this helps.

Have the tranny serviced with fluid change and filter, if noise it still there it is the torque converter . Have the dealer fix it ,and have it on paper with dealer invoice when it is done. Do all this before warranty expires. IT IS NOT USUAL for any car, Toyota included, to have tranny whine!!!!!
1)New fuel filter
2)New air filter
3)New spark plugs, properly gapped.
4)One bottle (the red one)of STP fuel treatment. 4 times a year.
At 80000 miles I would also renew the spark plug wires.
At this time you also need to service the transmission. You dont say if its automatic or a manuel shift model. The auto will need the transmission pan remove and a new filter installed,then new fluid to fill.
The manuel needs the oil drained and renewed.
