Default Specific DYI ATF Flush for 2007 four (4) cylinder 2TR-FE

Hello Guys,

I am looking for a DYI Automatic Transmission Fluid flush, for a 2007 four (4) cylinder 2TR-FE.

TRANSMISSION: ATM: AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION
GEAR SHIFT TYPE: 4FC: ATM, 4-SPEED FLOOR SHIFT

I have donned several searches but find info on the ATF flush only for the 6 cylinder engine.

This is the Filter my transmission use.
Part 35330-60030 : STRAINER ASSY, VALVE BODY OIL http://www.toyodiy.com/parts/p_G_200....html?hl=35330

Also, I am thinking on using VALVOLINE MAX ATF. Reading the product info, it say is WS compatible. http://www.valvoline.com/pdf/maxlife_atf.pdf

Also I can find here in my country MOTUL MULTI ATF that also is WS compatible
https://www.motul.com/system/product...pdf?1335542544

My automatic transmission has a dipstick and checking the ATF is brown color so I want to flush it and also change the filter.

Any advice?

THX

Isaac

That strainer assembly is exactly what it is described as, a strainer. You do not replace it, you clean it. [EDIT] Some will disagree with this statement. However, the strainer is a metal mesh screen that can be backwashed, cleaned then reused. The only reason to replace it is if the metal mesh screen becomes damaged. [/EDIT]

WS is a fluid I haven't found a suitable replacement for. Toyota WS has performed well for me and when I had used Motul in the past I could not discern a difference.

You might find the attached file handy...

Hey GreenThumb,

THX for your advice. Just today I called Toyota Parts Department and they want $120.00 for the strainer This does not include the rubber gasket

I think, I am just going to buy the rubber gasket, clean the inside of the oil pan and reuse the strainer.

I Will use VALVOLINE MAX ATF that is Type IV & WS compatible

THX for your time and help

Isaac

I still suggest using factory Toyota World Standard fluid. TIV fluid is for older generations. The electric solenoids in the valve body are pretty picky when it comes to the detergents and viscosity properties. Replacing sole kids can be a tricky business of whack-a-mole without a techstream.
