More out of curiosity than anything. A buddy has a 2017 Tundra and swears he cannot use any Transmission/TC fluid other than the "special" OEM Toyota stuff at $81/quart. Curious as to whether there is anything to this, or if there is a regularly-available off-the-shelf fluid that is "just as good." Figured if anyone would know, someone here would...

He said the local dealer was $81 per quart. And my buddy is a car guy that builds cars and such, but the Tundra is under warranty and he tows with it so he was trying to stay with OEM stuff. I can't imagine what is so special about this stuff that it would cost so much though. Hence why I asked here!

Wouldnt that be the Toyota WS? If so, a lot of people are replacing it with Valvoline Maxlife ATF multivehicle, with great results. I use Dexron VI in my Corolla for 20k without issues. The original WS with 100K came out very dirty, almost any fluid would be better than that mud. But WS doesnt cost 81 bucks a quart ...

If it's the "WS" fluid Amazon has it for like $37.00/4 quarts.....

(A Tundra Forum I just searched says this is the right fluid).

Hes probably talking about this precious fluid for the Transfer Case: Toyota Transfer Gear Oil 75w. 08885-81080. There are a lot of FJ, Tundra, 4Runner owners who have called [censored] and just gone with a 75w-85 or 90 gear oil and never looked back. Im one of them.

Yep me too. Rav4 transfer case should have that too. I just use Redline in it. I have yet to see where any OEM oil is any better a boutique oil. Granted this is suppose to be a hair different, but I just change it out every year with my rear diff oil since the Rav4's AWD clutch plates are in the rear diff and you have less then a QT of oil to dissipate the clutch particulates. Look at how uninspiring WS is. WS is a 20,000 mile oil at best in my eyes.

The ultimate question would be, what is your options you could use without voiding the warranty? If Toyota don't allow you to use nothing else, than they have to give there stuff for free while under warranty.

Toyota doesn't use a super duper special transfer case/PTO like a Haldex or ZF, Red Line makes a 75W-85 that works fine.

However, this might be worth reading: http://www.toyota-4runner.org/5th-gen-t4rs/78892-transfer-differential-oil-change-2.html

I just did a trans flush on my 2013 Tundra.

It took 12 quarts of Toyota WS fluid.

For components protection, I would prefer :
75W90 to 75W85;
75W85 to 75W80; and
75W80 to 75W ........where [email protected]*C (and if need be [email protected]*C) is higher of the two.

What does the OEM manual say for the x-case and differential?
They are purely mechanical gear sets and many folks here have used 75W90/75W110.

I don't think he is talking about ATF, and if he is that price must be off.
