read this it might help.
'Bout 60$ for the fluid.silvino said:Thanks for posting this. I'm about to fix things up and I didn't know about this article. THe guy before me tried redline once and my shifter didn't like recentering. I replaced a few parts that would help this but didn't know about what this article explained. I'll try to replace this too if it's not expensive as hell.
I have an auto too, and I flush the tranny fluid once a year, and only use the Toyota Type T-4 fluid I think. I think that's what it is. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.SupraLB said:At what mileage intervals do you need to replace the tranny fluid? I have 41k miles on the automatic tranny, but I just bought the car so I do not know if the previous owner replaced it.
Yeah, I know it was about the manual tranny, but someone asked about the auto, so I tried to answer their question.MDSuPeRStAr said:I flush the Auto tranny every 15-20k miles. This topic was about the Manual tranny. To answer your question though, stick to the Toyota fluid for your auto tranny. Nothing else is recommended..
