This car has been regularly and well maintained and has only 107 k on it. Look on the back of the bottle and it will list all the ratings that transmission fluid is approved for. The last clutch I had to replace was on a 1991 Suzuki swift that had over 220,000 miles. Make sure the vehicle is turned completely off. Oh, and make sure you select to search the body of the post, not just the topic. He himself has rebuilt many.
The 03's aparently had a 14mm standard bolt type plug. A week later, driving on highway in the middle of the night, heard a loud explosion type sound and swerved off the road. This was my second near-death experience this year in my car due to the transmission. Replace the fill plug, 7. He had me turn the car on without starting and pushed the vehicle. After I filling on a level surface, I let the some not much gear oil drip back out to be come level with the fill hole. Or at least it wouldn't for the Ford.
You can prolong the life of it if you only use it when actually shifting. Panic button Push and hold Fuel tank door release and cap Pull Turn. Door-Back Unlock Lock Open Door locks-Power if equipped Unlock Lock. Open Tilt Close Close Push once to open partway; again to open completely. How do you get under there if you don't have a lift like a car shop to lift evenly around? Perhaps the actual plug bolt may have changed over the years, but the location shouldn't have. It is very unsafe on the highway as it does not get up to or maintain speeds. It had a really musty smell that we traced … to the front passenger side carpet.
The thumping, slapping sound is coming from under the engine. Some vehicle owners have had it happen at less mileage. Your Corolla's automatic transmission doesn't take just any old transmission fluid. I don't feel it's wise to risk that kind of a big financial hit by not changing the transmission fluid. Remove the drain plug, drain out all the old4.
I think the weather is finally going to cooperate enough for me to change my transmission fluid this weekend. Toyota needs to recall their transmissions on the 2004 Matrix, I don't know how many more times I can afford to cheat death. Sixteen-inch steel wheels with plastic covers come on the base model and Matrix S. Park on a level surface, turn the engine off, and do whatever is appropriate for safety since you will be sliding under the car. Often, these shops and consumers do not have the Toyota Transmission Fill System.
This is a great thread. The thumping, slapping sound is coming from under the engine. There are 5 choices for the 2010 Toyota Matrix Transmission Assembly!!! Hi guys, we have a 2010 Corolla 1. Replace the fill plug, 7. I did not actually realize that gear oil and manual transmission fluid wasn't the same, and gear oil is exactly what I had in my c60 6 speed transmission, so I'm imagining that's prob where some of my tranny problems are coming from. What do you guys think? That's why being on a level surface is important 6.
It's a very important read for you and can save you the huge cost of a transmission rebuild. Though this interval is approved by Toyota, many consumers choose to change their transmission fluid prior to the recommended interval. The manual for my 2006 Matrix recommends replacing the trans oil every 30K miles only when towing. The car only has 92,000 miles and the tranny needs to be replaced due to a bad bearing. I still have an open case with Scion. Toyota dealers do not sell bottles in quarts here in Canada. By the looks of that transmission fluid, I recommend changing it.
That's what I do with my truck. I am very glad you shared the pictures that you did because we can see this fluid is indeed very old and I recommend changing it before your Corolla needs a very expensive transmission rebuild. And I had replaced the clutch and bearing when I replaced the engine back around 2002 or whenever it was. All five seats have head restraints, and active head restraints are standard up front. I did not actually realize that gear oil and manual transmission fluid wasn't the same, and gear oil is exactly what I had in my c60 6 speed transmission, so I'm imagining that's prob where some of my tranny problems are coming from. One wore out at ~8,000, and was obviously replaced under warranty.
The upright driving position makes the entry and exit easy and provides excellent visibility up front. You just yank the tranny out a ways, slap a new one on, and re-stab it. Am completely disappointed in this car and in Toyota. The xB has an iPod port standard. For those who want a grocery-getter with a bit more cargo space than their last sedan — including my grandparents, who own the outgoing Matrix — there are a lot of competitors that do it for a lot less cash.
