    Hello All,

    This is my first truck that I ever owned so, I apologize for this simple question. I know my tacoma has a sealed tranmission. I am concerned with not having the abilty to change the transmission fluid (as I do in my car) as I periodically tow a 3000 lb boat during the summer and don't want to have my transmission go out on me because of lack of maintenance. My truck came with a factory installed tow package. I know when I check the transmission fluid in my car, it doesn't have that nice red color when the fluid was new. Are my concerns valid? Has anyone ever had transmission issues related to the sealed transmission?

    Thanks All.
