    :confused:Well, I have read a lot of threads about DIY changing or not changing second generation transmission oil. Thus in Toyota Tacoma repair manual has a procedure for adjusting AT oil level, but not how to make a full oil flush.

    Well, let’s see how long guys have you driven your taco without changing AT oils and not having problems at all with it.

    Actually my taco has 106204 miles and still going right.

    Just in case, for those that don’t have it, I put two useful attachments, first one is general information about this transmission and the other one is the fluid adjustment procedure.

    Regards.

    not changing your trans fluid is like not changing your oil.i drain and fill mine every 15k.it only takes 3 quarts,5.75 a quart=17.25. at 90k i will have changed it 6 times,17.25 x 6= 103.50.(toyota has changed the service interval from 100k to 60k. )at 180,000 i will have spent 103.50 x 2 = 207.00...so if you flush at the dealer@60k you will flush it a total of 3 times at 180,000.dealer charges 275.00 to flush.275.00 x 3 = 825.00

    Not sure this is the right thing to say but don't you have some kind of lube express that can change it for you? It cost me around $65 on my 1995 Taco and nobody got dirty and I'd like to think it was done right. I've been told the dealer does it the same way. They stuck a rod thru the dip stick hole and suck out and pushed in new fluid. Not sure how it works but the tech said it was the same way the dealer did it...

    dealer has a machine that flushes using the cooler lines,doing it the way you are describing is basically a drain and fill.
