I have a 1996 Toyota Avalon XLS and it has a V6 in it. It has 240,456 miles on it. I am the third owner. The tranny fluid/screen has never been replaced. It is now a real dark red/brown.

I have a 1996 Toyota Avalon. I live in the state of Ga. Several months ago or so. After it rains. I began to here a swishing sound. I began to look for the problem. Found out with the window up, when rains and after words. Some how and do not know how it happens. But rain some how or another gets in my front passenger window. After I open the door.
