sump plug

Recommended Posts

The auto oil IS designed to be changed and as such there is a drain plug for it. The engine oil drain plug is on the drivers side of the car and the filter sits right next to the sump.

When did Toyota change to the newer auto oil that isn't included in the schedule???

Easiest way is to pull out your Auto Dipstick and read what it says on the sticker...

You mean that new WS Transmission Fluid? That stuff is designed to be changed... but after about 160,000kms I believe. You can usually tell if you have an auto box that uses that because when you try to find the transmission fluid dipstick, you won't find one.

Edit: I looked at the service schedule for my Aurion and it only shows to change the transmission fluid at 90,000kms if the car is driven under 'extreme conditions'. Under normal conditions up to 210,000kms (the last service per logbook), it only has the transmission fluid listed as inspect and replace if required.

I guess it is expected to last for ages under normal conditions.
