To replace the oil on your transmission is not that hard but as a auto technician I should advice you that if on any vehicle the transmission oil has never been changed and is a high millage vehicle by changing the oil the transmission can slip or go neutral you should take your vehicle to a transmission shop and have the oil changed there with special oil changing machine that would clean the transmission and converter while it replaces the old oil and if there's a risk on damaging the transmission then they will tell you before changing the oil on your transmission and if they change the oil and any problems should happen then they are responsible for your transmission but if you insist to change it your self by removing the oil pan on the transmission you let all the oil out some of these Japanese vehicles have a drain plug you can take the brain plug out then remove the oil pan once you remove the oil pan then you'll see the transmission filter with socket wrench using a 10 mm socket remove the filter and the same way replace it with the new filter don't over tork the screws tighten to 15 lb. then remove the old oil pan gasket and make sure by doing all this process everything is extra clean, clean out oil pan and replace gasket and install oil pan then after you finish pour in 3 qt. of good quality transmission oil then turn on engine and take the shifter to R then D and last N and with engine on check the level and add as needed good luck

If you know how to disconnect the transmission to the car. Then you just have to look for the drain plug , which is located under the oil pan.Now as a mechanic this is how to disconnect the transmission. The transmission is connected to the engine , if you disconnect it to the engine . First you have to loose the bolts that connect the transmission to the engine .from there you will see a clutch disc,disc plate.After this disconnect the transmission to differential , after disconnecting it to the differential .Then find a table that is strong to hold the transmission then .Make sure that the drain plug will not be blocked so that you can drain it easy . make sure that the transmission stand the way it is when its been placed to the car . So that it will be easy to drain ,now the drain plug is located under the oil pan .To open twist the drain plug counter clockwise to open .But before draining make sure the oil which is inside the transmission will spill on an other or extra oil pan so that it will not go to the floor . And will make the floor slippery .Then clean first the transmission by lubricating it with gas or a lubricating oil to clean the transmission .After that place back the drain plug twist it again but this time clock wise .then look for the cup which is placed on the side or on the top of the transmission .Open it then place the new transmission oil, then place back the transmission to the car. Place back the clutch disc and the disc plate to the transmission. Then connect the transmission to the engine by means of the bolts and differential also.But if you don't have time to do it , then find the best car mechanic . You will see this is what they mostly do.But if you can do it that some body will help you to assist you to change oil then you can save hundreds of money .

Oil in the cooling system


oil in the cooling system comes from a transmission oil cooler in the radiator leaking. I take it that you have an automatic transmission Normally if you have a gasket problem the water would be in the sump oil. You will need to replace the radiator to effectively fix the problem and as a side suggestion consider an air cooled transmission oil cooler for the transmission oil as it helps the car to run cooler and keeps the transmission oil cooler and extends the life of the transmission.

Transmission oil change


I take it you are talking auto transmission. Un do the drain plug in the box sump or if you do not have one remove the sump. replace filter in the sump . replace the sump with a new gasket and refill the sump. IF there is nothing wrong with the transmission and you only want to change the oil the best practice is to take it to a auto transmission shop where they can change the oil with the engine running and this changes the oil in the torque converter as well giving you a complete oil change. IT is more expensive as more oil is used but it changes all the oil and not just a part of the system. If your are talking manual, then remove the drain plug in the bottom of the gear box and when all the oil is out replace the plug tightly and remove the filler plug in the side of the box. Add oil until it runs out of the filler hole and when it stops replace the filler plug tightly. Use the correct grade of oils in both cases.

What maintenace Does a 2003 Toy Rav4 manual transmission need?


The manual transmission oil, or gear box oil can't last forever. It is a good idea to replace every 60K miles with a new one. Just as with motor oil, and oil change is cheap insurance. Buy synthetic oil if you can.
The manual transmission oil change is a simple procedure, but can complicated and creates costly problems.
First remove the filling bolt. In some cases this is siezed, If the heating doesn't help, you don't want a stripped filler bolt, with an empty transmission. Use WD-40 and do not use extensive force.
If the bolt still won't budge. Stop. Lower the car and visit a shop for service.
After removing the filler bolt (upper), then remove the drain bolt at the bottom.
Replace the drain bolt, with a new one, normally has a magnet, and thread it by hand after with a wrench.
Fill the gearbox with oil using a gear oil / lube pump. Replace the filling bolt and process same as with draining bolt.
If you will change the gear box oil every 60K miles this is the best insurance for your manual transmission. DO NOT FORGET TO REPLACE FILLING AND DRAINING BOLTS WITH NEW ONE.
In rare cases a rusty bolt is siezed, almost rust welded in the transmission housing, so the transmission must be removed and taken to a machine shop.

Transmission fluid level need regular top up and there is no external leak.Fluid color looks white.


If no external leak and the transmission fluid colour looks white, the problem belongs to the automatic gearbox oil cooler. The oil cooler has broke mixing the gearbox oil and coolant causing this milkshake. It's a small radiator core type oil / water heat exchanger. It is cracked inside and transmission oil is mixed with engine coolant. Because the transmission oil pressure is greater than engine coolant pressure, the transmission fluid level drops. See also the coolant colour inside recovery coolant reservoir inder bonnet! It could be like this:

Lost transmission


Can you check to see the transmission oil. See the quality of the oil, if there is antifreeze/water in it. It is possible that the antifreeze has entered the transmission and caused the transmission failure.
This is likely to be a cause of the radiator. The transmission oil cooler lines pass through the radiator and sometimes fail, causing antifreeze to pass into the transmission oil cooler pipes and then into the transmission, causing faults.
If this is the case, then you will have to replace the radiator. Repair or replace the transmission.
Hope this helps
