  1. Venza Gen1 (2009-2016)
    Here’s a puzzle for everyone... I just drained and refilled the atf on my 2014 4 cyl fwd Venza with 108,000 miles (I bought it less than 2 months ago w/103,000 miles On it). It has been running fine, I just like to do pre-emptive maintenance. No rough shifting, no signs of leakage at all...
  2. Sienna 2nd Generation (2004-2010)
    I just bought an 06 Sienna with 121,000 miles on it and will be changing the transmission fluid. I assume it has the original fluid in it. I notice that there’s a little bit of flaring as it up shifts from first gear to second when it’s cold and I’m driving about 5 mph on flat ground. I have a...
  3. Camry 7th Generation (2012-2017)
    I am needing to change my transmission fluid soon. I wanted to know if I can measure the amount of fluid that comes out and refill it with the exact same amount. This would be faster than to drain, fill, run the engine until specific temperature, drian till a trickle, then to tighten everything up.
  4. Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    I’m doing a series of ATF drain-and-fills. I get 4.2 quarts out of the 9.1qts capacity when I drain it (without removing the pan). After I refill, how many miles/minutes/starts-from-standing do I need to drive in order to fully mix the newly added ATF with the old ATF that remained in the...
  5. Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    Hello, I have 2007 Corolla S. I haven't changed/ flushed the transmission fluid. My friend gave me 7 or 8 quarts of chevron dexron iii mercon ATFluid. Is that ok to use on my car? Any idea? thanks zhtway
  6. Venza Gen1 (2009-2016)
    I wish Car Talk was still on NPR. I need Click and Clack to diagnose my car problem! Since they aren't available I'm hoping someone in this forum will have some insight. I have a 2009 Toyota Venza V6, automatic transmission, with 67K miles on it. On my first freeway trip after getting the 60K...
  7. Corolla 10th Gen/2nd Gen Matrix (2009-2013)
    Hi all, I had recently done 2 ATF drain and fills on my 2011 Corolla with 120000km. After the last fill i drove around a week and checked the level after driving, which i was right at the bottom of the hot line, knowing i had some new WS left over i figured i would add in a bit more. I had...
  8. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    So my rigid/metal line started leaking again due to rust, last repaired 5 years ago where the upper portion right behind the grill was leaking, back then I didn't know much about car so my GF had it repaired at a garage and they've cut out part of the rusted metal line to replace it with a foot...
  9. Camry 1st and 2nd Gen (1983-86) and (1987-91)
    1991 SV30, 4S-FE, just clicked over 200K Hey all, I am intending on giving the auto trans a flush and the car a general tidy up seeing its just come up to 200K on the clock. A couple of questions... a) What is the recommended ATF for this and the quantity? (I would just replace what I will...
  10. Camry 7th Generation (2012-2017)
    So I brought my car to the dealer today and mentioned about a light shudder at light throttle between 25 to 45 mph maybe while shifting between 3rd and 5th. Its a 2012 SE with 52K. Otherwise the car runs smooth at other low and high speed. The software update has been already done about a month...
  11. Celica Forum
    Hi everyone, So for the past few years I've been keeping my sister-in-law's 90 Celica ST on the road with regular maintenance (new calipers, rotors, belts, hoses, etc.). It's the coupe model with 1.6L 4A-FE engine and auto trans. I want to do a transmission drain and refill but I have two...
  12. Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    So... 302 000 kilometers old ATF. It's brown with dark crap in it. Should I drain it? If I do, should I remove the pan or not? A lot of people tell me not to do it if it works fine but there is also some people telling me it does not really matter. That's why I never did it since I own the car...
  13. Camry 7th Generation (2012-2017)
    Can the 2014 2.5 cyl Camry be driven safely for a short distance (under 10 miles) with some of the transmission fluid drained? I recently bought my wife a new loaded Camry XLE to replace her 2003 LE. She decided to surprise me and change her own oil to prove a point to me that she could do it...
  14. Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    I drive a 08 Corolla, 1zz-fe 102k miles Toyota and another establishment recommended I flush my ATF. The fluid appears black but not burned. I admit I've neglected this maintenance for some time (last time was around 30-40k). The ATF dipstick says the fluid does not need to be changed at all...
  15. Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    I know reading fluid levels should be basic and easy, but I'm having a hard time after my first DIY automatic transmission fluid change. I think my level is close, but I don't want to take any chances with my transmission. The stick is really hard to read because there seems to be some fluid...
  16. Camry 7th Generation (2012-2017)
    Been talking to a lot of guys in my unit who claim to know a lot about cars and they were telling me that changing all the fluids in my car to royal purple will increase MPG and HP. Just found a thread on a corvette form that actually had unbiased lab results comparing Mobil 1 to Royal Purple...
  17. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    Hey TYN! So i went under my 98 camry i4 and found, to my frustration, that the last owner or whoever the last owner took the car to stripped out the tranny drain plug! Short of taking it ot a mechanic to have the plug removed I was wondering if i can just pump the ATF fluid out through the...
  18. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    I came across this idea while doing some research on various fluids and it got me wondering. I'm going to be doing an ATF drain and fill and was wondering if I can use the same fluid in the power steering? :dunno: I figured i could get a 5qt jug of ATF and use the remainder from the drain and...
  19. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    Hi Everyone I have a 99 Camry with 145k miles on its 4 cylinder engine/AT. I got the car in the middle of year 2004 with 74k miles. Its fuel efficiency has never been great, always around 20 MPG, 22 in the summers, 18 in the winters. My driving has been mostly suburban, with some city and some...
  20. Avalon 1st Generation (1995-1999)
    135K mi Gen 1 Avalon here. Probably hadn't had the Automatic Transmission fluid serviced since 60k mi. About 3000 miles ago I did the Automatic Transmission fluid cooler return hose fluid replacement (and strainer replacement) with Mobil 1 synthetic ATF, topped off with valvoline high mileage...
