Toyota Highlander 1st generation 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007 Transmission Drain / Refill procedure

There are many methods to everyone’s DIY but this is how I go about it when I want to exchange / replace the old fluid with new fluid. It’s the safest method that I have read if you know your transmission fluid has not been serviced for a very long time which is my case since I don’t have maintenance records to backup the car’s previous life.  So I try to replace 3.5QTS every 4-5k miles about 4-5 times and that should be around 90% new fluid.

Tools Required:
-10mm Hex Head
-Breaker bar or related
-Transmission fluid of choice 3.5 – 3.8Qts will be required to bring back to the required level (I used redline D4 / .3-.4 qts of racing)
-Drain Pan / container of some sort
-Paper towel
-Long funnel
-30 minutes

Torque Settings: 36 Foot Pounds for drain bolt!

Thanks for tuning in!
