    just got mine done. 14 qts of new WS toyota fluid, and my truck is shifting very smooth. i admit, i didnt think it would make a difference. i towed alot during my front yard re-do, and my truck does some heavy lifting for hunting seasons. i have 68000 miles on the clock, and he quoted me $203 OTD. i jumped on it, and didnt wait for the 70k miles i had planned. i didnt want him to change his price.

    just a head's up. i think i got a pretty good deal.

    100k if you drive "regular".

    i towed a fair amount, and i did alot of hill climbing. i think it is 65k for harsher use.

    do you have a link?

    I only found threads about draining and filling (which is only 3 qts or so)

    I would want to do it all in one shot so I wouldn't have to do it again for a while

    flushing yourself is basically just doing several drain and fills till the fluid is clear to your liking.
