Well I changed my tranny fluid over the weekend, and all I can say is WOW. What a huge difference it made for my car. I had two quarts of Royal Purple in the garage, so I just used that.

This is a very easy DIY job. If you can change your own oil, you should be able to do this.

What's the best way to fill it back up? How do you siphon it up in there? You can't fit a bottle up to the fill plug.

LMAO I registered just out of disbelief people would not only buy one of these but admit it online in a forum. I could think of just about anything I'd spend 13K on before I bought one of these sardine cans. I'd need to roll down a window and leave my legs hanging out just to be able to get laid in one of these gocarts! Tell me there's a poll post for the best fart muffler to u-bolt onto one of these and I'll shit myself! Sorry for laughing at you all...but I'm laughing at you all! ROFLAU I'm a real azzhole, the kind that bangs your girl then beats you up when you complain about it. I make you pay for the abortion and charge ya gas money for the date.

JK. These little buggers probably get sick gas mileage and they probably do corner good as a shifter cart. I wouldn't fit in one but I wouldn't mind not having to stop at every other gas station to pump $40 bucks of 93 from the 12:1's and revups.

Yea, your a douche bag As you can see in my sig I have a 02 duramax that runs high 11's in the quarter mile I drive about 70 miles a day so got a yaris and it gets 44mpg on average. Mine is bone stock and will stay that way. I don't diss people on this forum for modding there cars. Maybe they aren't like you and I and don't like diesels or v8 cars. I don't care. I signed up just to figure out what was wrong with my car and keep and I on parts that i might need.

I just called my local Toyota dealership and they said they use GL3 (or what is official Toyota oil) made by Esso (Imperial Oil)
Strange, no mentioning of GL3 on Redline or AMSOIL site.

TSB on AMS just mentions GL3 Category as obsolete.

in cold weather

I think in cold weather it could help with the shifting. Down here in texas where we only get below freezing once or twice a year I dont think it's worth changing out the tranny oil. My Car's 2009 maintenance schedule says to just check the tranny fluid. I'm not going to change it out until maybe 150-200k miles. I think you would have problems with the clutch plate and padel/slave cylinder before you would the gearbox, IMHO.

Never in my entire driving career have even considered changing the oil in a manual transmission. Your car would rust into nothing by the time this would become an issue.
