Replacing and Inspecting Your Toyota Vehicle’s Transmission Fluid

How often you replace and inspect the transmission fluid in your Toyota is laid out in your vehicle’s Owner’s Manual. Generally speaking, transmission fluid replacement and inspection intervals can range anywhere between 15,000 and 100,000 miles.

Toyota recommends that vehicles featuring an automatic transmission have their fluid changed every 60,000 to 100,000 miles. Vehicles with manual transmissions should have their fluid changed every 30,000 to 60,000 miles.
