    well....you can do a simple drain/refill............just remove the drain plug,then fill back up with toyota's t-iv(t4) fluid. or do as i did............

    i drained the oil, then removed the pan and cleaned the magnet and sprayed out the screen/filter with brake cleaner. removed the old gasket material from the pan, used new rtv silicone for a new gasket and bolted back up. then refill. the hardest part was disconnecting the dipstick tube.....it comes apart near the middle. when you put it back.....use a lil lube on the o-ring and it will go back on alot easier. be sure to use toyota t-iv fluid in that tranny tho.

    well....on my truck,when i drained it, then dropped the pan.....it was 5 quarts........but they will vary a little bit. yours may be 4 quarts if you do just a drain and refill.

    Is this an auto or a manual? Am I missing some piece of information that indicates which it is? Because it is obviously completely different for each tranny...
