    i beg to differ, the ws oil as mentioned by Toyota is for life, i.e. you don't need to change it, and Toyota recommend it for a960e tranny which is not cvt

    ok here is my theory, you don't need to change the atf ws oil at any given interval, you just need to top it up when any servicing is done on the tranny. after topping till the overflow plug you add the amount of oil mentioned.

    now i have attached the refilling procedure, and it is clear from that, now what happened in this specific mark x case was, that when the overflow plug was opened, 3.7 liters of oil came out, and than the over flow plug was put back and oil refilled from the refill plug hole, until oil started to come out of there, it was 3.7 liter.
    people take the overflow plug as drain plug and refill plug as the overflow plug, and basically overfill their tranny, the previous mechanic must have done the same too.
    Spectra doesn't agrees with this, i have no experience of my own, and my theory is based on the manual.

    further more to support my point that the oil doesn't needs to be changed is due to the fact that there is no atf level stick as in normal autos and no refilling point in the engine bay as in normal autos.

    I dont feel like risking t he tranny with lesser oil so it is the way it is for now. As thec ar was running fine previously and now as well so i guess extra oil (if any) is just roaming around inside

    Also, post next steps of ATF filling, there are around 20 of them

    I am trying to get rid of these rims mate, wish me luck
    T-4 fluid can be used where WS is pecified, but with much more frequent change intervals. (T-4 is semi-sythentic whereas WS is fully synthetic.)

    Mobil 1 Type 3309 ATF is the same as T-4 also ifit can be found in Pakistan.

    Yes it is, i beleive the hoses to the radiator should be undone and needs to be extended at a level below the bottom end of Transmission, that might throw whole oil out

    @ Spectra

    Sir I own a Mark X as well and type 4 gear oil is not recommended for Mark X at all. The only oil you should use is WS. It is always available at Toyota Islamabad

    Infact I was reading at a forum and the use of type 4 can ruin your gearbox. I would recommend to immediatly flush your gearbox and get WS

    For differential always use liqui Moli

    Engine oil I personally use Mobil One only and change it after every 5000 KM
