2002 Lexus ES300 Question: When to Change Tranny Fluids

 

Question

At what mileage should I have the transmission fluid flushed? Me Lex has 72,000 miles and as far as I know has never had the fluid changed. I don't want to push because I LOVE this car!

    There is no given mileage interval. The ATF has to be inspected at every 30K miles. If the fluid's color is changed, has an odor or there is a shifting issue the fluid needs to be changed. On most Lexus the fluid needs to be changed at 60K. Use only the approved ATF.
