    I can't find anything in the maintenance manual for my 05 Tacoma 2WD that says anything about changing the manual transmission oil. All it says is that it needs to be inspected. I'm coming up on 100K and I'm betting that its never been changed. I bought it used recently. Neither of the 30K or 60K maintenance/inspections were done. Anybody got any ideas on when this is usually done? Thanks

    I just checked the manual for my 2011 4x4.

    It calls for changing the transmission oil every 30,000 miles only when using the vehicle for towing. Is there even a tow ball on your truck?

    If I were in your shoes, I might change it at 90-100k "just because." Or, I might leave it.
