Every 30,000 miles or 24 months, whichever comes first. That's what my manual shows.

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.

Transmission fluid will clean out the engine but then I suggest using 3 quarts of 5w/30 and 1 quart of 20w/50 at your next oil change.

Actually what you are driving has a very strong transmission, what i would suggest is getting the fluid and filter REPLACED not FLUSHED. This should solve your problem depending on miles.

Want to know if you recommend a transmission flush for my car? It has over 140,000 miles. What sevices do you recommend?


Yes a tranny flush would be great. I would recommend Either Going out and purchasing a new tranny filter, gasket and Transmission fluid from your local Auto parts store and doing it yourself, CHEAPEST. Or going to your local Valvoline to have it flushed. Cost is around $100

I took the car in for an oil change and they told me it need a transmission flush, the fluid was terrible and burnt looking and needed an upper in take clean. The car has 120,000 miles on it, but we aren't...


Hi,
Based on your description of the color and amount of miles on the car, I'd say do it. The flush will purge all the old fluid in your valve body too, that wouldn't simply drain out when they drain the fluid. It might make your car happy :o)
Hey... I love my '03 Toyota Corolla with 151k miles.

Transmission fluid change


It differs with use but for a rule of thumb you can look at the fluid on the dipstick against a white cloth and if it brown to black looking not a reddish color you should have it serviced.Either a drain and fill or a complete trans flush if it is black.Your trans will thank you
