Check your owners manual for recamended fluid and filter service. Some new cars and trucks don't even have a dipstick to check the fluid level, because some transmissions and transaxles on newer cars and trucks are sealed from the factory and are designed to not require fluid changes and periodic checking of fluid level.
Your owners manuel should have all the information on servicing the transmission, the engine oil, tire rotation, jacking points on your vehicle, as well as oil grade/wt. along with when to change your filters, etc.

1998 t100 Transmission slipping in drive and reverse.

Check your transmission fluid levels first. If its good then that rules that out. When was the last time you did a transmission fluid flush and filter? It's recommend to flush and change filter in transmission every 30,000 miles. Also if fluid looks redish brown and smells burnt you could have bad bands.

Do I really need to do a transmission flush, I have 106,000 on my 06 Sienna and am not having any problems - thanks

you need to look in your owners manual to see what appropiate mileage it is for your transmission to be flushed out, 106,000 miles is definitely too long for this procedure, i normally flush mine out at 30 - 40,000 miles , then again around 65 - 70,000, and so after, i am suspecting, since you have never had this procedure done, they might want to replace the transmission filter, and pan gasket also, but waiting too long sometimes can cause transmission failure, because there has been times , when a transmission has went too long before being flushed, varnish had built up on the internal parts, and then when you flush it out, the new fliud can remove the varnish gradually, and allowing clearances between the parts, and transmission failure could happen. if you have any doubts about it, you can also contact your toyota dealership, thank you. hope that this information has helped.

How many miles till transmission service

Hello. Welcome to FixYa. Please allow me to assist you.

The best service you can give your transmission is as follows: Drain and refill the transmission at 30,000 miles. Flush the transmission at 60,000 miles, drain and refill at 90,000, and flush it again at 120,000 miles. That is the same recommendation that I give my customers in our Toyota service department. Following that maintenance schedule, we do not have any transmission failures.

Thanks for choosing FixYa today. I hope that my assistance proves truly useful to you. If so, a 4 thumbs rating for my input would be very nice of you.

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

Dealer is telling me that to get the transmission flushed and gasket changed is $350! What is that about? I am having zero problems with it, but has 75,000 miles on it and has never been flushed

A transmission fluid service does not cost $300 dollars so it sounds like they are going to hook it up to a machine and flush out all the fluid in the transmission. Most automatic transmissions should have a trans service done every 12,000 miles(except BMW they are sealed). I personally think these so call transmission flushes are not needed all though your vehicle is way overdue for a trans service. How does the trans fluid look? They might be recommending this service because you have that many miles and never had the trans serviced. If you have had regular trans services done then you do not need a flush. Ask them how much a regular transmission service is and if they do not offer it to you then take it to a local mechanic and have it done.

Transmission problems in the RX300 are common for those who never flush the transmission fluid. I would strongly urge you to quit driving your RX300 and get it to a dealership where they can flush the transmission fluid. There is no transmission fluid filter (per say) but there is a "screen" inside the transmission that needs to be flushed out (this serves as the filter). Pull out your dipstick for the transmission and smell the transmission fluid - does it smell burned? I hope not, but regardless, take it to a dealership and get the tranny flushed and see if that makes a difference. Also, continue to flush the transmission every 60,000 miles at most! Lexus says that you do not need to flush the transmission, but I think you do. I have a 2001 Lexus RX300 and I have had no problems with the tranny and I've flushed it at 60,000 miles and then again at 115,000 miles. I now have just a little over 120,000 on it. It's a good running vehicle but you need to care for it!

Transmission oil for toyota camry 1993

1993 Camrys take regular Dexron ATF. It should be changed every 30,000 miles. If you have never changed it, and it is over 100,000 miles, I would strongly suggest a professional "transmission-flush", with a designed specifically for flushing transmissions. To just drain the fluid at this point will leave roughly 3 quarts of dirty ATF in the system; a complete flush will eliminate ny dirty ATF traces.

Chevrolet Malibu 2001 Transmission Flush or not

75,000 miles isnt alot of miles,unless they were mostly city miles. If you aren't experiencing any transmission problems,i would drop the pan,change the filter and whatever fluid the pan holds,and hold off on flushing the entire sytem.The clutches and bands sometimes don't do well when shocked with ALL new fluid that contains a certain amount of detergent.The only real problems i have seen with the total flush is on Dodge trucks of the 90's up to even 2000 and some later models,the transmissions use a governor pressure sensor,and solenoid,and i have seen many of them set codes after the flush,and the components having to be replaced with new.Black fluid isn't a good indicator.Brown fluid,is better than black.And red fluid is the best.
