Drain and Fill at 190xxx miles?

Hello guys. I brought an 2000 Toyota Echo with an automatic tranny at around 183xxx miles in December. After taking it to my regular mechanic to inspect it, the engine was in surprisingly good shape.

However, I went to a transmission shop in town to check the tranny and they checked the fluid. They saw that it was black and smelt bad. However, the transmission guy road tested it and said that it shifted smoothly with no issues. He offered a drain and fill, but wasn’t certain of the outcome.

Then, Scotty Kilmer rolls around with his regular Q&A videos and he says that he had people he drained and filled their transmissions for as late as 180xxx without a hitch (if they had Toyota’s, since they had Aisin transmissions)

My Echo now sits at 190xxx miles. I want to drain and fill to lengthen my little car’s life, but I don’t want to have the tranny go on me.

Anybody have any experience with this?

If you want to drain/refill your transmission, do so.

I would also drop the pan and change the filter out.

So many trolls so little time
