    I'm in the process of changing the oil in the rear diff and in the transmission. The rear diff is done, everything went well, and the drain plug had a magnet to catch any metal shavings. The transmission is halfway done, and I noticed that neither of the plugs have a magnet on them. Could this become an issue down the road? Should I head over to Toyota and get one before I fill the tranny back up?

    Thanks in advance.

    i don't recall any of my plugs on my 08 MT having magents, but I could be wrong.
    you can also just get some button magnets, like the ones on fridge ornaments, and glue them in.

    I have the manual tranny, the automatic is the sealed unit if I recall correctly. I have over 11,000 miles on it so far, so I felt that the rear diff and tranny would be pretty well broken in by this point. I wanted to get the original fluid out, along with any metal, and then get some Redline fluids in there.

    Thanks for the responses guys. :)

    My fluid was pretty dark when I changed out to MT-90 at 10,000 miles. With no magnet there is probably some reason for not having it. I wonder if the Colorados(same trans) have them. My shifting got a little smoother especially in cold, but nothing ground breaking.

    I noticed the same thing. The shifting is smoother and the transmission is quieter, but the difference is not night and day.
