I tend to watch YouTube when Im bored instead of tv, Ive seen a couple videos that Ive watched and thought to myself no thats not right, or its easier to just do it this way, or shut up get to the point lol. A lot of people seem to be intimidated by sealed transmission, personally Ive dealt with them professionally for the batter part of 2 decades. Its really simple and the process straight forward and logical once you understand the steps you need to take and why you need to do them.

The Warranty and Maintenance Guide does not recommend replacing the strainer and yet under special operating conditions, it recommends changing the fluid every 60,000 miles. I suspect the large surface area of the screen is designed to hold all of the larger particles shed over the life of the clutch pack and still allow sufficient fluid flow through the strainer. There are three (3) ways non-metallic material is captured, in the fluid, coating the pan and in the strainer. Perhaps back flushing the strainer with used ATF is an option. Overall, a very good video.

Your warranty and maintenance guide also stops at 120,000 miles. If you want to change it... great. If you dont want to change it... great.

Nice video, thank you for sharing. I do mine every 15k as well, but I usually start putting my check plug back on at the 16:29 mark in your video. If you notice the flow of the fluid changes as it has now crested the top of the "check valve". I was wondering why you waited longer to put the plug back in? Would love your thoughts. Thanks again for posting.

Theres a temperature range for removing the check plug. As long as youre around that range and the fluid slows to a trickle your good. Anything beyond that your talking minuscule differences in fluid capacity, especially when its a system that in total holds 11.3 qts of fluid.

Pretty good vid.
Factory manual says temp 1 needs to read between 104 and 113 if you want to be by the book.
Do you usually only do the one drain and fill per 15k?

Correct, 40-45 C is the official spec, that along with torque specs, process, pet numbers, are all in the description on the video.

I drain every 15K when I have the skids off to do the diffs.

Three (3) ways non-metallic material is captured in a sealed transmission are: (1) very fine particles remain suspended in the fluid, (2) some particles cling to the pan and strainer and (3) large particles that would bind in close clearances are captured by a large surface area strainer that is likely to hold a lot of material without significant flow restriction.

These are robust design details that contribute to legendary Toyota reliability.

I rarely incur special operating conditions, so I recently exchanged 12 quarts at 114,000 miles and didn't open the pan. As a result of watching the video, I'm planning to wait until 180,000 miles to inspect and back flush the strainer with used ATF, replace strainer o-ring, clean the magnets, clean the pan and change 12 quarts of fluid.

Incidentally, in 2012, a GM TSB recommended no external transmission fluid exchange, drain and fill only, which implies do not open the transmission pan. I find it very hard to agree with that recommendation for obvious reasons that have been thoroughly discussed on this forum (and moreover, I would never buy a GM product).
