Frequency to changing transmission fluid on 2003 Corolla

I recently gave our son the title on a 2003 Toyota Corolla. This vehicle has ~80K miles. He brought it in for a oil change and the mechanic convinced him he needed to have the transmission fluid changed? What does Toyota recommended in terms of when transmission fluid needs to be changed? Thank you.

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.

Loud noise from Exhaust means your exhaust system is leaking.

My 2003 toyota corolla is out of transmission fluid and I need to know where to put new fluid it it

If your transmission ran out of fluid, you have a leak and need to have it looked at asap. It is not supposed to run out of transmission fluid. Major transmission damage will occur if you run the vehicle without fluid.

I need a corolla 2003-2005 under $7,000. where can i get one like that?

It's not impossible. You may find some luck with the more popular car buying sites such as or
For that price, I would find private owners that are selling the car rather than dealers and bring cash. I got a really good deal on a 2003 S model.
More than likely, you will end up buying a CE model, which only lacks the power features but have the same engine and transmission as all the other models. You may want to also look at the Chevy Prizms which share the engine & transmission as the toyota. They stopped making these in 2002. Good luck,
