This was to inform all on how to reduce grinding when shifting into reverse.

This was written respectfully as possible.
I will be as respectful as possible as well. This issue with shifting into reverse with the stock or other conventional fluod is a known issue. Expecting someone to shift into first just to shift into reverse is unacceptable. Telling someone to be patient isn't a cure to the problem. Sure, it is possible that drivers are over anxious to shift, but the issue has even been noted in published reviews. Once again reviewers could be over anxious to shift, but they have experienced many many manual transmissions in most cases so they have firm ground to stand on regarding the behavior. I have driven a few dozen different manuals from various vendors and have experienced this only on well worn transmissions not brand new ones. I had the issue within the first 1000 miles. Changed to synth and bam, resolved. There is a reason why so many manufacturers are switching to even requiring synthetic; it is a much more tolerant and better working lubricant.

Just sources some Redline MT-90 from a local store near me for $21 a quart, not too bad a price. I'll be picking it up later this week and putting it in this weekend.

I get a slight quick grind when shifting into reverse in the morning in my driveway and I'm currently running 75w90 synthetic. Not much better than oem just a little thinner in the dead of winter.

I'll leave my thoughts on here once I test it out.

GL-4 seems to be what give much smoother shifting over GL-5. I've installed my GL-5 tranny fluid but haven't driven the car to try it out yet.

What about Amsoil 75/90? It only comes in GL-5. Any suggestions?

Can transmission fluid just be added at the dipstick entry for auto?

Hi -

I have a 2009 5-door hatchback Yaris.

Thanks for the great DIY instructions and photos - so helpful.

Can I just add the Toyota transmission fluid there? Do I have to drain it? If so, can I drain it from the bottom, the same way as the manual?

Thanks so much!

Thanks for this. I bought a 08 Hatchback a few months ago with a 5 speed MT with 65k miles. This was so easy and the shifting is much much smoother now. Only took 20 minutes, and most of it was waiting for the fluid to drain and for the fresh thick gear oil to flow down the tube.

So I did my gear oil yesterday and I took the fill plug off first, and when I did oil started to pour out (less than a quart), did this happen to anyone else?

That is fine it just likely wasn't overfilled before due to the front end being jacked up higher than you had it.

FWIW I over fill my trans fluid by about half a quart

Not much came out when I did mine. Had a flat surface though.

Then poured 2qt in, small quantity came out and that's what I left it at.

Yeah it wasn't much that I had pour out, it was up on jack stands. The worst part was that I wasn't anticipating it so I didn't have a catch pan ready at the time so I had to spend the next half hour trying to clean my friend's garage. I put in about to quarts on level ground afterwards and it seems to be doing fine, it shifts way smoother than before.
