Manual transmission fluid or gear oil is thicker due to additives and additional compounds basic to lubricate the gearbox and additional components. Manual transmissions have a higher friction environment due to the way gears are changed, thus the lubricant is distinct.

Not only are the fluids discrete between manual and automatic transmissions but the level of heat the fluids experience is incredibly discrete. Automatic transmissions generate a few more heat and thus the fluid in your transmission must be changed more commonly. If you don't change your Toyota Highlander transmission fluid, your transmission will have broken metal shavings and supplemental corrosive material spread throughout the crucial parts of your Toyota Highlander. You should commonly check the fluid levels between your fluid and transmission flush service intervals. In countless cases, manual transmissions don't come equipped with a dipstick to check your fluid levels, so it can be extraordinarily difficult to do. Call or visit Bill Estes Toyota for more information if your transmission doesn't contain a dipstick.
