If you have a Toyota Tacoma/4Runner/Sequoia/Tundra/FJ Cruiser with the Aisin-Warner A750E (2WD) or A750F (4x4) automatic transmission, here's a great, informative post over on the Tacoma World forum on how to do a full transmission fluid exchange yourself, without any special fluid exchange machines or tools.

I used this exact post to perform a transmission fluid exchange for the first time on my Tacoma back in 2012 when my truck had 101,000 miles. I now have over 198,000 miles, so it's time to start thinking about doing it again.

I use the OEM fluid (Toyota WS), and, last time, the dealership parts dept. clerk gave me a little deal on the 15 quarts of fluid I bought (10% off), just by asking if he'd be willing to do a little better on the price since I was buying 15 quarts. Just checked with my local dealer, North Nashville Toyota, just across the street, and the parts dude at the counter said he would do 10% off.

For those who aren't aware, this transmission doesn't have a dipstick, which makes it slightly more complicated, but it's still pretty easy. User Mountain Lion on the Tacoma World forum gives very easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions, which are idiot-proof.

Anyway, I know there are quite a few folks here who have these vehicles, so, I figured I'd share something that has helped me.

Not sure I'd want to use that hand operated lift pump to move quarts and quarts of oil.

On mine I found a 5/8" (ID? OD? I simply bought several feet of different sizes) clear PVC tubing fit into the fill port; I snaked a hose up into the engine compartment and shoved on a funnel for filling. Let gravity do some work for me, for once.

I have one of these trans but just do a drain/fill every 50k. The drain/fill while cold changes out a 1/3 to 1/4 of the system capacity.

I did the first drain/fill at 6k miles and the fluid was just ever slightly darker than fresh. I did another drain/fill at 20K and the fluid that came out looked brand new, so I think that first change was more beneficial than the subsequent one.

I do not own one of these transmissions,
but I am going to read just for curiosity/educational purposes!

Looks to be the same for the A960E for my 2IS, link to PDF.
