2007 Toyota Corolla Q&A

2007 Toyota Corolla Question: 07 Corolla LE has 70,000 miles. Is transmission oil and coolant flush required?

I am getting different answers. 70,000 miles right now and transmission oil is a little darker and coolant level is slightly above LOW. No leaks. Need to know if I should have the tranny oil flush with filter and coolant flush as well. What do you recommend? Thanks -
Answer 1
That info is in your owners manual. However it wont hurt to change both coolant and trans fluid, not flush. Use Toyota trans fluid. -

Re: transmission fluid all I see on the dipstick is "do not change under normal driving conditions." Manual does not talk about tranny fluid; I did see coolant change info though. -

Will not hurt to dain fluid/change the trans. filter and refill with Toyota fluid, do not have it flushed. Then do not worry about it again! I recommend changeing the coolant now! -

You bet. Go ahead and put Toyota trans. fluid in it as it is a one shot deal and only holds about 3 to 4 Qts. for a drain and refill~! -
Answer 2
You do not have to use Toyota fluid. Penzoil will do a good job and cheaper. -
