Easy. It's just like the differential. Make sure the car is level on a lift or 4 jack stands. First remove the fill plug up on the side of the case, then the drain plug at the bottom. Put the drain plug back in after it's finished draining and refill with your favorite flavor of transmission juice (Mine's Red Line MT90 synthetic) untill it begins to over flow the fill hole. Put the filler plug back in and GO DRIVE![email protected] said:Does anyone know how to change tranny fluid on 5sp?
Lexus says you should change both the differential and tranny fluid at 30,000 miles.Tycoon said:Does anyone know how often (miles) do we need to change transmission and differential fluids?
In the manual supplement, it states that to replace them "only if vehicle is operated primarliy while towin a trailer or using a camper or car-top carrier." So if we don't use our cars in any of those activities, we won't ever need to change our transmission and differential fluid? Can someone enlighten me?
I have the 30,000 service list in my car. I was trying to find out what they did at that check-up and they photocopied if for me.Tycoon said:Wxman,
Thanks. Did you hear that from a tech or a salesperson? The owner's manual didn't specifically states it that way which is ambiguous.
Is there any downfall for replacing them too often (15,000)? Except the fact that it'll make your wallet thinner :lol:
