    I decided i was going to change the transmission and differential fluid on my taco. I noticed there was a drain plug at the very rear of the transmission. Is this the correct plug. Also where is the tranny fill and drain plug located? There is also another plug just to the rear of the engine oil drain plug. Is this to the tranny too? Help Appreciated

    Mostly stock for now, I have added a cb radio, various cheap mods and I plan on adding aftermarket wheels and other items in the future.
    You may just want to take it in to the dealership, to have everything changed. I'm not sure what the exact mileage to change the manual trans. fluid, but I heard it was every 30,000 miles or so. Your diff. should be changed every 25,000-30,000 miles, sooner if you do a lot towing/offroading etc. But here are some threads on the subjects, hope that helps.
