    There is a filter that can be cleaned. And ~60k is a good time to change the atf

    Btw check the severe maintenance schedule in your owners manual.

    newer toyota trans will darken the fluid as the clutch material wears off (its graphite loaded) - dont worry about that. It will operate perfectly with that dark fluid. If its actually burnt then there is a problem.

    The filter (more like a strainer - aka channi) is under the trans and can be seen when the sump is removed. It will be pretty obvious. btw - whats the model trans that IMC cars have? - its written on the ID plate on the car. I believe its the oldschool corolla unit from the mid 2000s which takes T-IV

    it usually gets packed by 150,000 kms - the trans will start to act funny and even completely lose drive in severe case - transmission rebuild required and if you try to drive it with choked filter - you will burn out the torque converter too

    is the strainer/ filter supposed to be replaced, i saw a video where a guy changed the fluid on a porsche boxter s, the whole process for changing the fluid was very similar to what you do with a 1krfe automatic vitz, but on my friend's vitz, the filter was not changed.

    btw the magnets were furry on the vitz

    i was amazed at the similarity, both required the fluid to be filled until it starts dripping out, both cars had similar magnets in the sumps and the filters were also similar looking

    most cars now are using the fill till drip method - this is advantageous to manufacturers in a few ways.

    1 - it prevents the owners from maintaining it themselves - (mo' money for the dealer)
    2 - it prevents ill knowing shops from adding any wrong fluid in it.
    3 - it makes it easy to fill - just stick a pump in there and pump away. No need to read a dipstick - even a near blind person can do the task.
