    When talking to a friend recently about my Prerunner transmission service, he said to just "drain and fill" a couple of times instead of the usual remove pan, clean or replace filter and refill.
    I think "several" second opinions are needed to convince me that is the proper method.
    Also, need fluid recomendations, and how much I need to have on hand.

    personally id sooner drop the pan. alot of shit can settle on the pan that you actually need to wipe off. i dont have an automatic but id say droping the pan would also be the cheaper route.

    Just drain and fill. There is no filter, only a screen. The screen does not need to be serviced. If your trans fluid hasnt been regularly changed just do 3-4 drain and fills with a short trip between each. This will get most of the old fluid out.
