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

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!

Thanks so much.

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~!

You do not have to use Toyota fluid. Penzoil will do a good job and cheaper.
