i changed mine out. drained, filled a little, drained it again(to get some more of the old fluid out and grime), and then filled it all up. Shifts great, no problems either.

Got the flush....

Just left the Toyota dealer after a complete transmission flush (about 6 miles from the house). Got them to add the Lubegard Platinum....I can honestly say it shifts a lot smoother....I could tell the closer I got to my house the smoother it continued to shift......Hope it continues.....Thanks to everyone for the advice....Have a great Easter!

I'm surprised they did a full flush with that many miles. How much was the cost if you don't mind me asking?
