Toyota 4Runner Transmission Flush

A transmission flush is usually twice the price of a fluid change due to the reward of time the service takes and the fact that the flush not only replaces the fluid in the pan but also removes fluid from the cooler lines and added components of your transmission.

How do you know if you need a Transmission Fluid Change or Transmission Flush?

A transmission flush is only convenient if your system contains dirt or debris. If the fluid is highly dark or contains disparate sediments, we would advise a complete system flush instead of just exchanging the fluid.

Toyota 4Runner Automatic vs Manual Transmission

Automatic and manual transmission will consistently require alternative fluids. Automatic transmission fluids are typically thinner and are consistently red or green in color. Manual transmission fluid or gear oil is thicker due to additives and substitute compounds necessary to lubricate the gearbox and substitute parts. Manual transmissions have a higher friction environment due to the way gears are interchanged, thus the lubricant is alternative.

Not only are the fluids assorted between manual and automatic transmissions but the level of heat the fluids experience is highly assorted. Automatic transmissions generate a lot more heat and thus the fluid in your transmission must be changed more constantly. If you don't change your Toyota 4Runner transmission fluid, your transmission will have broken metal shavings and extra corrosive material spread throughout the vital components of your Toyota 4Runner. You should constantly check the fluid levels between your fluid and transmission flush service intervals. In frequent cases, manual transmissions don't come equipped with a dipstick to check your fluid levels, so it can be highly difficult to do. Call or visit Bill Estes Toyota for more information if your transmission doesn't contain a dipstick.
