Question about choosing Transmission Fluid


Recommended Posts


I have a 2005 Corolla Ascent which I bought in 2007, with 41000K on it, now at 81000K and I have never changed the transmision fluid.

Quoted from Users manual:

"Change automatic fluid as necessary. Generally it is necessary to change automatic transmission fluid only if it is driven under one or more of the special conditons listed in your "Warranty and Service Booklet"." These would be things like very dusty roads, extreme weather conditions etc.

Also checked Haynes Service and Repair manual and it confirms the above, ie Toyota generally does not recommend changing ATF unless driven under extreme coditions.

If you are still unsure, check with your local dealer.
