Manual transmission and rear end oil change

1989 22r with 190,000 miles here. Recently had some work done at the local Toyota dealership. They recommended I change my manual transmission and rear end oil, which they were happy to do for $160.00. Is that necessary?

If you are going to DIY I recommend an up grade to the synthetic of your choice.

Changing fliuds is always recomended after a certain amount of mileage. I change my trans and rear end fliuds in all my vehicles every 30k. Never hurts to change fluids.

Oil every 3k-3500
antifreeze once a year
brake fliud every two years
gear oil every 30k
trans if automatic every 30k

GL-4 gear oil is strongly recommended for the manual tranny over the much more easily available GL-5. GL-5 is too slippery and doesn't work well with the synchros, causing hard shifting. Best GL-4s are Amsoil MTG and Red Line MT-90, both synthetic. Summitracing is a good source for Red Line products, if you can't find it locally. You must use GL-5 in the differential(s). You can use either oil in the transfer case (if you have one).

You can very easily do it yourself & save over $100 bucks. I would change the trans/rear end fluids if I were you. people often overlook these fluids.

NAPA carry's Stalube 85W-90 GL-4 gear lubricant for your manual transmission and many brands of conventional 80W-90 GL-5 gear lubricant for your rear differential.

Toyota installed Conventional gear lubes in your truck at the factory because Toyota knows they can enable your tranny and rear end last 600,000+ miles. No one on this forum ever suffered from a worn out transmission or rear end because they failed to use synthetic oil so there is no legitimate reason to spend extra money on synthetics (except owners who live in subzero winter climates)

If your truck is two wheel drive you do not have a transfer case.

UNLESS, it's an automatic, you may need to change fluid.

Question Fill allen plug

What is the size of the large allen plug you need to remove for the gear lube change in the tranny in a '92 22RE, 2WD 5-speed manual?

My plug to change the gear oil was not allen. It was a normal 24mm head. I know because I had to go out to Sears at 9pm and find one. I have a '94 22RE, 2wd manual.
