These transmission are very durable so I wouldn't be to worried. It may be under filled or over filled. You can also use a infrared gauge to check the temperature of the pan in order to get between 105-115 degrees. Drain and refill is what I do.

1) I'd just do it myself to make sure it was done correctly. If you don't have that capability, then a really good shop.

2) I would insist on Maxlife or a high quality WS-compatible fluid, but I would NOT use WS. It wears out quickly, creating slip and this is well known.

3) The temperature is just not as critical as indicated. The thermal expansion rate of ATF is not that large. What TheCritic said is adequate; idle a few minutes in shirtsleeve weather, or go drive around the block once or twice.

4) Are they checking the fill while running, (else it will end up low). I am guessing they are, but helps to check.


You said the car has 126k and you've done drain/fills. You did not say when you got the car and how many that has been. If you have done less than four drain/fills at average ~2qts each, I'd say this sounds perfectly normal for WS fluid with that many miles on it. You just haven't changed out enough of it to get back to a healthy % of good fluid. So:

How many drain/fills have actually been done on it since new, with what fluid?

Professor Kelly on Weber Auto youtube channel did his research on the ATF, and he is very skeptical on the Maxlife ATF. Go see that video on "60-years of toyota ATF". It's a fact that Maxlife ATF does NOT have a single licence for this ATF, and it claims that it's compatible to Dexron 6, totoya T-IV, WS, etc. And we know through TSBs from Ford and Totoya, that these fluids are NOT compatible. How did Maxlife manage to create a fluid that's compatible to those fluids is everyone's guess. I would use only WS for your ATX.

Maxlife works great on all of Toyota's we have. I have been using it for almost 10 years now.
