I have a 2012 2.7 Automatic trans Tacoma. It has 82k on it. I want to change the fluid or a partial change but it says its life time fluid. I don't buy this but if anyone knows of a viideo and I did do a search but not found one that is any good yet. can you post it for me or direct me to a site that has pictures? Thanks much.

The owners manual not clear on it, either. The first time i changed mine was when I got some chatter. Same with the next time. Last time I had a change the mechanic used some Valvoline formulation, and it has now been 3 years and about 50,000 miles. Everything's working well. I do have 4.0 TRD Off Road, so there may be some differences.
