I believe we also had this discussion about Toyota Brake fluid replacement as well. Let the dealer do it as all you can do is a drain a flush. Some blame the occasional input shaft bearing failures on not changing the oil it's the first bearing to go dry if the oil level drops as it's not fed by the splash oil going through the mainshaft. This check should be done with the vehicle on a level surface. This check should be done with the vehicle on a level surface. Look up the Gearcruncher on the forum.
Going to keep trying this system for a while if it will keep working. Open it and pull out the cabin air filter and replace it. If low ,pour fluid down the stick housing very slowly and recheck as needed. The reset tire button is under the dash by your right knee. There is no dip stick to measure the transmission fluid.
I'm debating even using them. Doesn't get more anecdotal than that. There is no trans dip stick on the later model Tundras. So, tell the shop not to flush the transmission. It doesn't seem prudent not to change these fluids, unless things have drastically changed since my last vehicle.
I dumped my trans oil at 35k it looked fine, it was definitely over kill. Keep in mind I do a whole lot of slow climbing in 4x4 with much of that in low gear because you will burn the oil otherwise. I have driven automatic Toyota's for Well Over 200K Miles without ever changing the transmission fluid. I expected the overfill plug would be dry. You will see a trap door. The allen head plug was middle on one side of the pan and the drain plug was in back of the pan towards rear. Also note there may be instructions for determining the level if the transmission is hot or cold if you've just driven it or not.
Squeeze the sides of the box inward a little and pull it out. Kinda like not having an integrated towing system from the inside. I was wondering if I should drop the tranny pan and replace the gasket put in new trans fluid and possibly change the filter. I had a conversation with the parts man at my Toyota dealer today I asked the same question. A flush is the only way to refresh all the fluid 5.
The reset tire button is under the dash by your right knee. I did a drain and fill, and added in a tube of dr. All the answers to your maintenance questions are in there. Power Angle Length Control switch Control switch Push the control switch, set angle and length. I've answered this queston before along with Where can I get the Oil filter removal tool. Are you asking about the model with the 5.
The vehicle must be level and the fluid thoroughly warm when you check. I like the dipstick idea and the shit shooting ball idea. Did the same with a 1st Gen Tacoma and now have right at 200,000 miles on an Avalon going this route. I do not tow or plow with it. If so you won't even find a transmission dip stick.
Open the Box, Remove the brace on the right side. It's designed to go 100,000 miles before the first service and even then special tools are needed to service it. And the fill is in the same place as the dip stick. I just did a service on an 07 6 speed 4wd. And finally you got to the paper filter after removing the oil cover plate. Must remove with an Allen wrench.
