    I am not sure but I guess I paid 3500 or something for 4 litre

    But check with toyota Islamabad

    Plus If interested PM me, I can guide you on how to turn off seat belt beep for pessanger side, or turining off traction 100%

    One more interesting fact is ...Put the key in driver door and unlock it and keep it there...it will unwind all the windows from outside and the other way would wind them all up

    Greatt car and excellent description on parts.
    How did the car drive after all this work? i am sure there wud have been a very decent difference in drive.

    One more interesting fact is ...Put the key in driver door and unlock it and keep it there...it will unwind all the windows from outside and the other way would wind them all up
    Haha good option, but seriously no use ov it, even i rarely put down my windows.. too much dust and crap in our environment.

    For differential always use liqui Moli

    Engine oil I personally use Mobil One only and change it after every 5000 KM
    Type WS is preferred for its superior lubricity and durability, but T-4 can work albeit with a shorter life and crisper shifts, providing it is changed frequently.

    Again, if WS is available, it should be used, no doubt.

    Why?

    The majority of the fluid is in the torque converter and clutch packs, which are not drained when the pan is drained.

    Typical drain and refill on a Toyota auto trans is only a few quarts (liters) around 2 to 5, with the total capacities ranging from 7 to about 15 quarts (liters).

    The fluid level requires a certain temperature to be checked, but otherwise it a fairly straightforward procedure like the manual indicates.

    Some people use a machine hooked through the trans oil cooler pipes to change out all the fluid, while others have hooked up simple home made pipes and done the same if you are so inclined.

    Push start system means you have a smart key.

    The T-4 can be run for now with no problems in my opinion, but for peace of mind..... it's up to you.

    Auto gearboxes need correct levels of fluid as well as the properties to work as designed.

    its not about tIV the worries me but the fact that we might be running it above the max level, and a mixture of tIV and WS
    its all about power to weight ratio...

    the manual says you can use TIV if WS aint available but should replace it to WS ASAP

    vcheng i was talking about this, yes it is that oil level should be on the recommended level but isnt more oil more dangerous then less oil

    Overfilling would be bad with excessive clutch pressures and seal blowouts a risk.

    The mix is no problem IMO.

    You are correct: More oil is dangerous here too.

    can anyone confirm how accurate level is to be ensured. we did it the old fashion way by opening the upper nut and when oil came out of it, we stopped filling it.

    The procedure needs to be followed exactly with the right temperature a must.

    That is the best way for the correct oil level.

    I have a 2006 IS250/350 service manual and I think your car has the same trans and procedure. I will read up on it and check at my end.
