    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.:thumbsup:

    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?

    I did my own full flush before I got rid of my truck. Truck liked it a lot more and I was skeptical. You'll notice if you have any problems especially with new fluid lol.
