    Thanks, that makes sense. I guess I'll order two to be safe and hopefully I can return the one.

    I'm not complaining, and big picture my past Toyotas have been very low maintenance. But this scenario is straight out of the BMW Service play-book "you need 1 (point) [x] of something but only in qty's of two..." Maybe I can sell the unused 0.9L in the classifieds? :thumbsup:

    Today at 4745 miles I changed the motor oil. Replaced the 0w-20 with Mobile 1 and the filter with a 57047 Wix.
    I noticed quite a bit of metal particles inside the plastic filter case. Is this normal during the break in period? I drew an oil sample either way, and will send to Blackstone for analysis.

    Normal for break in, means the filter is doing a good job. And thats a good thing.

    IMG_4400.jpg IMG_4420.jpg Replaced rear diff oil at 22k miles, soon will be doing front & transfer case. Diff oil came in at around 3.5 quarts, maybe a hair over (full is 4.0 in my truck) and dirty. Debris magnet was pretty caked, probably 5mm thick of shmoo. Will be contacting toyota ASAP about the low fluid as my service department had been asked several times to check. Also will be examining debris under the PG1000 microscope at work for fun

    Please let me know what you find. I'm thinking of changing my rear diff fluid soon. I have about 2500 kms on the truck.

    I was reading somewhere (so completely unfounded) that some transmission places change out their fluid on a new diff after 500 miles.
    I'm between 2500-3000 kms on my truck. After seeing @mateo_roberto diff oil condition at 22k miles I thought I would play it safe.
    I order me up some Redline 75w85 GL5.

    Toyota gaskets / washers for trans/ rear ends etc.
    Note I replace crush gaskets each use because they tend to leak .
    I am posting this because trying to buy them 1 at a time on ebay or Amazon is crazy. They want as much as $12 a piece for them with shipping . Get them from the dealer for less than $2 a piece or with these sizes I bet you can find them at a local hardware store for cheaper. I bought mine at the dealer to get them to measure . Note a trip to the dealer for me is 100 mile round trip.

    Rear drain plug gasket - Toyota part # 12157-10010
    Rear fill plug gasket - Toyota part # 12157-10010
    Front fill plug gasket - Toyota part # 12157-10010
    This is an aluminum crush washer , OD = 24mm , ID = 18mm, 2mm thick (new)
    Trans case -
    Front drain plug gasket - Toyota part # 90430-24003
    this is a copper solid washer , OD= 32 mm, ID=24mm , 1mm thick (new) and should be reusable .
    Fill plug gasket - Toyota part # 90430-A0003 . This is a solid aluminum gasket and should be reusable. OD=24mm , ID= 18mm , 2mm thick .
    Transmission -
    Drain plug gasket - Toyota part # 35178-30010 -
    Overflow plug gasket - Toyota part # 35178-30010
    these above are an aluminum crush washer . OD=16.5mm , ID= 12mm , 2 mm thick -(new ) .653 in. x .470 in. x .085 in.
    Fill plug gasket - Toyota part # 90301-15004 , this is a rubber O-ring that measured OD 20.3mm (approx. .800in. ) ID - 16mm ( approx. .63in. ) x 2.3mm thick ( .09 in. )
    I believe I got this all correct and may have been posted before but , this is what I found .

    Thanks for all the info.
    Has anyone tried Royal Purple in the transmission?

    This covers the front and rear diffs and transfer case.

    I seriously considered it because of it's availability but after much research I still chose to order some Redline online.
    That's probably not really the informative answer you're looking for but it's all I've got.

    They do, but it does not ever have to be replaced. It's desired to never remove the transmission pan. I would only consider replacing it, if I was already pulling the pan for another issue.

    Any reason you went with the redline?

    As far as my research went, the three most popular options for diff fluid were Amsoil, Mobil 1 and Redline.
    I felt Redline was the best product out of those three.
    Just my opinion though.

    So are we talking about the diffs or the transmission? The original question appears to have been about transmission fluid. I just want to clarify for WartHoGG. I don't think that there are many non-OEM options to replace the Toyota WS trans fluid.

    I was reffering to differential Fluid.
    I don't think the FSM suggests anything but OEM Toyota WS Fluid.

    Thanks renau001. I thought if there was a filter maybe I should get it changed. I like to change all the fluids and filters at around 500 to a 1000 miles on a new vehicle. Gets all the breakin material out of the systems.

    I have come to the same conclusion
    There doesn't seem to be a good substitute for the OEM stuff for the transmission
    Thanks to everybody for their input

    Considering the exact same gaskets are used on the FJ w.r.t. diffs/transfer, I'm going to guess with 99.99% certainty that the MT uses the same gasket as the transfer case, PN 90430-18008 (old number) which is cross listed with 90430-A0003. Will need 2x for drain and fill port.
