My 04 still has the original battery. I only have 26000 miles. What kind of battery did they have in new 04 Toyota Corollas?

My maintenance book says nothing about changing the manual transmission oil unless you do alot of hard driving. Should I change it at 30,000.

I think any mileage is a good time to drain out the manual transmission fluid and pour in some good Redline MT-90. I'm not generally a "synthetic oil" kind of person, but the MT-90 has transformed the shifting on my '07 LE with 23,000 miles on the odometer. I highly recommend it. It's not cheap, about $15/quart. But with only 2 quarts necessary, it's a rather inexpensive "modification" that will net you a positive change everytime you drive it (which, in your case, doesn't appear very often!).

The original battery may be a Delco. Toyota used Delco batteries during that era I think. Mine says "Toyota", but I'm not sure who actually manufactures it. Probably Johnson Controls (JCI).
