Heavy tools needed:
-Floor Jack
-Jack stands
-wheel chuck

Hand tools needed:
-3/8" drive ratchet
-12 mm deep socket (a 6" extension isn't shown but also recommended)
-1/2" drive breaker bar
-1/2" drive 10" extension
-1 1/16" deep socket
-1/2" drive 24 mm short socket
-oil catch can
-funnel

Steps:
1)Put the wheel chuck behind your back tire and Pull up your e-brake

2)Find floor jack position

3)Lift car until you can fit jackstands under the car
4)Lower the car a bit so that it sits flat on the jack stands and the floor jack still has a bit of pressure pushing up on the mount

5)Locate the reverse sensor in your engine and unplug the grey connector on it.

6)Right behind it is a 12 mm bolt you have to remove. Use the deep socket 12 mm, extension and ratchet to remove it and just move the metal braket aside a bit.

7)Now use the 1 1/16" deep socket to remove the reverse sensor.

8 )Now get under the car and locate the drain plug.

9)Use the 24 mm socket and the 1/2" drive breaker bar (if your socket is 1/2" drive) and loosen/remove this bolt. This WILL be messy so make sure you have your oil catch can under neath it.
Try to hold the bolt in place as the fluid comes out until a good bit has drained. This will prevent it from going everywhere.
Just let it drain for about 5 minutes.

10)When it's done draining, replace the drain plug and tighten a good bit. It has an aluminum washer so it'll feel like it can keep tightening but just go until you feel it's very snug.

11)Lift your car off the jack stands and lower the car back down. Remove the oil catch can prior to doing this.

12)With car on the ground, grab your funnel and place it in the hole where the reverse sensor would go.

13)Add 2.5 quarts of your desired gear oil. You can use Redline MT90, Amsoil 75W/90 gear oil,...Just make sure it's GL4 compliant

14)Replace reverse sensor and tighten. Again, this also has an aluminum washer so just tighten it until it feels nice and snug. RECONNECT THE GREY PLUG!

15)Replace the 12 mm bolt and just hand tighten until snug.

16)Prior to starting the car, push the clutch in and move through the gears slowly. You should notice a nice, smooth gear transition.

17)Last, clean up, remove wheel chuck from rear tires, and go take it for a spin.

Enjoy!

I believe that you have to get a special tool and it goes directly into trans housing.

What kind of automatic transmission fluid do i need to use?


Your Scion TC requires Toyota type T-IV auto trans fluid that is a mineral oil based fluid, do not mix with different types of oils. If your fluid is burnt smelling or very dark in color be advised fresh fluid could be a bad thing as fresh detergents could wash away the last remnants of clutch linings.

How do i check the transmission fluid in a manual 2007 scion tc


Check in your owner's manual or with the dealer. It has to take either gear oil, or a few manuals do take transmission fluid, don't know about your model.
All manual transmissions have a drain plug near the bottom of the case, and a fill plug about half way up on the transaxle case. You check the level by taking out the fill plug and see if the oil is right up to the fill plug hole. If oil is o.k., make sure it is not the gearshift linkage binding before you suspect an internal problem inside the transmission. Good luck.

How many miles until I need to change my coolant, brakes, engine belts, rotating/pressure for my tires, alignment, windshield wiper blades and fluid, transmission, air filter, power steering fluid, shock...


depends on how you drive, the car will tell you when you need to change the oil, tire pressure, most tire shops will tell you 5000 miles then rotate tires, remember front to back same side do not change right sides for left sides, as far as trans oil, never, wipers depends on what kind of area you are in.

I havent changed my transmission oil on my scion tc 06, where is it located at?


That's not something to do at home, especially if you don't know where to start. It usually involves removing the trans sump pan. Take to a quick oil change place and have it done. Furthermore, a "normal" home style trans fluid change only replaces about a third of the fluid. Professional place with right equipment will change all of it. (Trans fluid rule of thumb.. 80 k mile or so ought to be changed, but check your drivers manual for details.)

I cant find where i check my transmission fluid


do you have an automatic transmission or a 5speed? Sounds like an obvious question, but if you have a 5speed, you don't have transmission fluid. If you do indeed have the automatic, the yellow puller is for the engine oil and the orange one is for the transmisson. Once you pull out the orange dipstick, you will fill with ATF right there using a funnel

you don't have to drain the oil on a manual transmission. There is no transmission fluid on ANY manual transmission. There is a clutch.
