  2. Yaris/Scion iA, Vitz and Echo Forum
    I recently took my 2010 Yaris, with 196,000 miles, in to get looked at and I have some concerns with Toyota. I don't know if I am overreacting or if my concerns are valid. My Yaris was having some trouble shifting from 3rd to 4th gear (automatic transmission), so I took it to my regular...

    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. Sequoia Forum
    Hi everyone! This is my first post! I was recently handed down a 2004 Sequoia Limited 4x4. The truck was purchased new and maintained for 16 years by my uncle, an auto and bus mechanic for 30 years. Sadly, he passed away a few months ago at the young age of 54. He and I shared a bond that was...
  5. Avalon 3rd Generation (2005-2012)
    I need to change the oil and filter, trans fluid and filter, power steering fluid (and filter?), and fuel filter in my sister's Avalon. I have a lot of experience working on cars, but never a Toyota, and never this car. The car has 114k miles, and the idea is to change out all the fluids and...

    I had put AMSOIL Severe Gear GL-5 75W-90 in at 278,000 miles after some extensive research and good recommendations from a few of my Subaru friends. The shifts during this period were AWFUL. During this time I was pretty sure my transmission was just failing me and it didn't shift that great...

    All, I am happy to say that my 2007 model Camry LE (bought in December 206) is 10 year old with zero maintenance. I do not drive much hence only had 64500 miles on it. We drive around 10 miles a day on local roads and sometime long drives. I live in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania with hilly terrain...
  8. Avalon 3rd Generation (2005-2012)
    Toyota says only use their Transmission fluid in the 2007 Avalon, so I started my search for Toyota's recommended tranny fluid. What did I find - a lot of talk about how it is an inferior product, with a low flash point and how it can become acidic. Also a lot of talk on how Valvoline MaxLife™...
  9. Camry 1st and 2nd Gen (1983-86) and (1987-91)
    Hi all, I have a 1990 Camry, with over 185,000 miles and a manual 5-speed transmission, that has been sitting for the past 4 years or so. After charging the battery it starts and runs well, but won't shift into any gears except snapping into 3rd and grinding into reverse. The clutch was going...
  10. Corolla 10th Gen/2nd Gen Matrix (2009-2013)
    I'm at about 40k miles on my Corolla (2010 Corolla S 5-speed manual,) and I want to change my transmission fluid. I went to an autozone and asked them to look up the fluid for my car, and they came back with some synthetic multi-vehicle ATF (it says WS on the back, so it would probably be fine...

    Hey guys, newbie here, first post. I have a 2003 Camry v6 with the 1mz-fe engine, and i believe it to be a 4 speed automatic transmission. I have seen the drain and fill vs flush argument before, but i would like some advice for my specific vehicle. It has about 61k miles on it right now and...
  12. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    I'm planning on draining the auto transmission fluid in my 2000 V6 Solara SLE. What do you guys recommend replacing it with? I'm curious to see what I should go back with. Thanks as always for your helpfulness.
  13. Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    I have been searching everywhere and have gotten mixed responses, so I am hoping someone on this forum can enlighten me. I have a 2007 Camry 4 cyl with about 154K miles on it and I have two questions. 1. I had the transmission power flushed (which I am now reading is bad) at about 100K miles...
  14. Avalon 1st Generation (1995-1999)
    I just figured out to post a new thread! Oh well. Maybe I can go back and fix my DIY's. Question regarding transmission fluid. I've gone 140k miles with out changing my transmission fluid. I want to change out my fluid. However, I've seen debate regarding whether or not I should just drain and...
  15. Corolla 8th Generation (1998-2002)
    Hi, Mine is 2000 Corolla CE with 146K miles. Went for an oil change and the mechanic suggested me that I may need transmission fluid sooner. The last time I did was about 65K if I remembered correctly. Now, tell me, do I have to do transmission fluid flush or just fluid exchange? How does...

    I bought 3 quarts of atf t iv from a friend and was short a quart after draining my 08 corolla of atf. I went to the dealer and told them my year and model and they gave me the atf ws. I just went ahead and poured it in with the t iv. Is this ok to do?
  17. Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    This will be a long-winded, so my apologies beforehand. I just purchased a 2006 Camry LE 2.4L Auto with about 80,000 on it. I like how it rides and runs, so I would like to keep it in good shape. But I do have a couple questions about maintenance. A car manufacturer recommending services...
  18. Corolla 10th Gen/2nd Gen Matrix (2009-2013)
    Hi all! I'm about to do a transmission fluid change on my 2009 Toyota Corolla and couldn't find the transmission fluid drain plug. Google search revealed various answers - located on transmission pan - located on transmission itself. Can anyone send a picture of where it's located for a 10th...
  19. 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...
  20. Land Cruiser Forum
    Hey, I have had this car since '97 but lately the transmission has been acting weird. The way it feels right now is you put it in drive but it doesn't move it seems like it's in neutral. I turn it off, it cools down, and then it works again but only for a while. This is what I know and I've done...
