The 2.4 is 2AZ-FE, which has been carried over. Didn't know the 1.8 got something new. Interesting. Still I find it strange that t-iv was the required ATF for a long time, and then its switched to WS, but t-iv and WS not being interchangeable.

I am still yet to find a clear answer if WS and T-IV are interchangable or not. If U340E tranny was used in 2005 celica and required T-IV at that time, why does 2009 - 2011 1.8 corollas with the SAME transmission require WS now? It even says in owners manual that only WS can be used. Again, I switched to Redline D4 and did not see any problems, only improvements...

Thats what i have been trying to find out as well. Have been reading thru posts on this site as well as other forums and have not been able to find anything definitive. One thing I read and found interesting was that even though the model number for a particular trans didn't change over the years, it still could have updated internal clutches/packs designed now for WS, so if a thicker non-synthetic like t-iv was used, the trans may react differently as compared to the WS specified. Again, don't know if thats true or not. I am certainly not an expert, just what i read.

lexus114,

No it's not. 229 is repeating the fact of dye fading not being an indicator of oil needing to be changed.

That may indeed be the case; however, after changing my factory fill of WS with Redline D4 (also synthetic), I did not notice any change in the shift quality. I don't know; however, how this transmission would react to changing from WS to the actual T-IV...
