by the way my car is at 63k
What kind of difference do you see Lightningrod? And how much did it cost you?LightningRod said:It would be a good idea. I flushed mine twice: once at 30k and recently at 60k. Man what a difference.
All of it. Theoretically, that is.zheng17 said:So if i pay the dealer 120 dollars( which the coupons), they will flush all that junk out or just some of it?
As much as I hate giving Toyota my money, I trust them more than any other privately-owned shop.Phatsprinter said:Should i have a toyota dealership do a tranny flush or someone else?
Of Course man!!! you have to flush it or your tranny will be short lived. I changed mune every 20,000km /13,000miles. you wouldn't believe the color of the used tranny fluid (maybe cos' we live in dirty environment here) it is like deep purple color.zheng17 said:by the way my car is at 63k
That is absolutely normal, it's designed that way, the ECAT will not allow a shift into 4th gear O/D if certain temperature parameters are not met. It's been like that in most Toyota trannys with electric/electronic O/D. I have a 1984 Toyota Crown with an A43DL and it's like that. At work we have two 2005 Yaris sedans and they're like that too.hobie said:hey sprinter, i think i share the same problem with you. When i start the car and drive, it won't go pass third gear until the engine warms up a little.
