1 Answer

Many cars require that you change the automatic transmission fluid when it's warm or hot. However, many experts recommend that you change a Corolla's automatic transmission fluid when it's cold. Most Toyota Corolla cars require that you change the transmission fluid at least every 20,000 miles or 24 months depending on the year model of the car. Check the owner's manual to confirm the recommended maintenance schedule. Park the car on level ground. You can raise it with ramps or jacks to gain easier access to the transmission. Ensure that you safely support the car. Clean the outside of the oil pan and the surrounding areas thoroughly to remove all dirt and grease. This prevents contamination when you remove the pan.

If the drain plug has a metal gasket, you can clean and reuse it. ... more
