Toyota Transmission Flush

A transmission flush is ordinarily twice the price of a fluid change due to the amount of laborious time the service takes and the fact that the flush not only replaces the fluid in the pan but also removes needless fluid from the cooler lines and other parts of your critical transmission.

Toyota Automatic vs Manual Transmission

Automatic and manual transmission will frequently require an assortment of different fluids. Automatic transmission fluids are usually thinner and are frequently red or green in color. Manual transmission fluid or gear oil is more burly and thicker due to additives and other essential compounds necessary to lubricate the gearbox and other parts. Manual transmissions have a higher friction environment due to the way gears are changed, thus the lubricant is greatly different.

Not only are the fluids different between manual and automatic transmissions but the level of heat the fluids experience is remarkably different. Automatic transmissions generate ample heat and thus the fluid in your transmission must be changed more regularly. If you don't change your Toyota transmission fluid, your transmission will have perilous broken metal shavings and other corrosive material spread throughout the critical parts of your Toyota.

In many cases, manual transmissions don't come equipped with a dipstick to check your fluid levels, so it can be extremely difficult to do. Call or visit Larry H. Miller Toyota Lemon Grove for more facts if your transmission doesn't contain a dipstick.
