Have it changed. I guess that is the answer you want.

And have the filter changed if it has one. Make sure Toyota - compatible fluid is used.

Hmmm…wonder how he knows the fluid is dirty if he doesn’t have a dipstick??

;-]


#6

Why would he NOT have a dipstick? Sealed transmissions from Toyota didn’t appear until about 2005.


#7

Uh, I was being sarcastic…

;-]

My Corolla does have dipstick.When i check the transmission fulid its black. What should i do?

DO NOT FLUSH, under any circumstances! Have the fluid and filter changed by dropping the pan and cleaning it out,. Have this done by a reputable independent shop, not a chain such as Cottman or AAMCO.

Cost should be about $135 or so.
