Agreed, however I'm looking at Mitchell On Demand as I type, and it says the automatic transmission fluid capacity is 2.6 quarts, or 2.5 liters... Compaired to that of which another member above replaced 4 quarts.

It just struck me when I saw the capacity vs. what someone else put into the car after a drain. Figured I'd mention the spec..

The manual trans is 2.0 quarts or 1.9 liters.

And to get to my actual point here, I'm wondering how you guys like the Royal Purple? I've heard mixed reviews... I must confess, I'm actually a Volkswagen guy (My girlfriend owns the Yaris) and people weren't too impressed with it in the 6 speed GLI's which is what I have. And I want a REALLY good synthetic for the Yaris (5 spd) because I noticed it has no syncro for reverse, and sometimes when you put it in reverse (yes, with the car stopped) it gives a quick sharp grind and kinda lurches the car slightly. Can't be good... And I don't want metal shaivings causing havoc. So what do you think is the best synthetic trans fluid out there? Thanks guys!

/rant lol

I put Redline MT-90 in this last summer and love it. And now that winter temps are here I couldn't be happier with the decision to use it. I never really notice a cold shift difference vs. warmed up like I used to. And reverse engages a lot smoother than it did before the change. Give it a try-two quarts will set you back about $22 most places.

Awesome, I was thinking of using the Redline in both her Yaris and my Jetta. I've heard good things, and I can pick it up locally for 12 bones without having to pay shipping. I'll post back up after the fluid change and tell you guy how I feel about it.

you won't be disappointed . Takes a little time to get the full benefit . Work through all the gears , including reverse .

Just replaced my MT tranny oil today at 22k miles and WOW! What a damn difference.

Good to get the old gear oil out of there and some new - I bought the car used at 19k miles and who knows howthe original owner drove it or grinded 'em;) lol

REDLINE 75w90 FTW!!!

It's amazing . No more grinding , smoother shifts , and no clunk into reverse . Used it in a '08 we had . Better cold shifting too . Enjoy .

I know it!

I really didn't think it would make a difference ESPECIALLY since the old oil that drained out was very clear and seemed still good.

I wonder what brand and type of oil Toyo uses as the factory fill for the MT tranny.

Is 75w90 the correct weight for 5 speed?

Hmmm.

I used red line 75w90 that was GL-5.

Is this going to be an issue? What are the drawbacks to using this oil vs. the MT-90 which is GL-4?

is it this one www.redlineoil.com/product.aspx?pid=47&pcid=7 or this one www.redlineoil.com/product.aspx?pid=46&pcid=7 ? If it's the 75w-90 NS GL-5 you should be fine . Says has improved copper corrosion protection for life of syncro . Give them a call at 1-800-624-7958 and ask if it's compatible with the YARIS . They're very helpful .
