Hi guys! First post here but been lurking for a while. Just wanna say thanks to the one who made this DIY guide! I used 2 quarts of Redline MT-90 on our 2008 Vios (Yaris sedan's name here in the Phils.). Car has 42K ++ kilometers on the ODO. Will observe the gear changes later on, as I've read a lot of good feedbacks on this oil. Many thanks again Yarisworld. :)

Can someone post a link to Amazon with Red Line that's MT-90 GL4 75w90 that has been recommended.

I can only seem to find MT90 that is 90w. Or if I do find the 75w90 MT-90 it's in 5 qt.

I don’t know the difference from 75w90 and 90w but it seems most of you are recommending the 75w90.

If possible would like it sold or shipped by Amazon to take advantage of prime shipping.

Thanks for the quick reply. Do you know if the oil link below is a 75w90, I know Amazon doesn't always do a good job with product descriptions and it say's 90w but am not sure if there is a difference.

Which is an 07 manual hatchback that lives in the south Texas heat.

elo179 , you could ask a local private owned auto parts to possibly order it for you . That's what I did . AMSOIL has MTG ( 75w-90 , GL-4 ) synthetic and is usually easier to purchase . MTG , http://www.amsoil.com/shop/by-produc...r-lube-75w-90/ . Good Luck .

Thanks for the tutorial. As mentioned by others, the oil did gush out. All the oil must have come out in less than 5 seconds. I was thinking of letting it slowly drip out when it started coming out just before the bolt comes completely out and I should have :)

Somehow I had never changed the oil for the manual transmission and it was probably [over]due, currently sitting at 147 000 km... lots of highway kms but should have done it before.

I used the marker trick and it worked really well for the top bolt. Bottom one fell in the oil pan and the mark came off.

Filling it up with a funnel from Canadian Tire with a hose attachment worked like a charm.

Looking up from underneath:

Where I put the funnel. I moved the air filter cover sideways a bit to make the funnel go in a little more

Well done . On occasion during an oil change I drop the drain bolt in the oil bucket and have to fish around for it . Keep us informed on any improvements with the new fill . Well worth the mess .

I was a bit doubtful that I would see any difference as the shift stick was moving around really well with the old oil. Well now I can hardly believe it but it is actually slicker. I would think that the biggest difference will be in winter driving.

Oh and I didn't have a 24mm socket or a 1/2" ratchet(as most 24mm sockets seemed to be 1/2" inserts). Found many at the pawn shop. Got the ratchet AND the socket for $4 all in!

Sorry but my Yaris is base model and didn't come with an owner's manual.

What type of fluid is recommended for the 5spd manual? Is it 75w90?

thanks

I hope you changed the AF too!

I was having the same problem shifting into first (at a very slow speed, maybe 2MPH?) so I found this thread and changed my gear oil to MT90 2 days ago. I cant believe how smooth it shifts now, its like butter........ BUT............. it still grinds when going into first... even when going into 2nd gear just before. Agghhhh
