Question about 2006 Scion tC
Heavy tools needed:
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
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.

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