Well, how long do you want it to last? You don't NEED to if all you need is say 50k before you trade. But if you want more than that... or plan to tow heavy... it's probably way advised.

It's a pain but there are (were?) threads on Tundra forums on how to do it. I've been putting off doing the second one on mine but it wasn't that bad, just have to get enough PVC tubing (5/8"?) to feed fluid to it.

I did drop the pan on mine, and I think the worst fluid was in the bottom, where it wouldn't drain out. But the filter is a strainer and I don't think it needs replacing--if it does, or you find chunks in the pan, well, you've got other problems. I'm not sure if it's worth dropping the pan and disturbing the gasket on these trucks at all. If the magnets are fuzzy, what good is it to clean them--isn't the damage already done?

I did Maxlife in mine. I don't think it made a difference. If the OP isn't aware, there are umpteen million pages about OEM fluids vs do-all (or universal) fluids. The OP might be well off reviewing those threads and seeing if they have enough aspirin to sort through it all--if they can hadle that, they can handle the fluid change.

Right! Have done the same procedures on my 06 Tacoma always done drain fills I pump fluid in as I fined it easier.

I don't know why people call it a "sealed" transmission.
There is a drain plug in the pan, a check plug with a standpipe in the pan, and a pull plug.
It is no more "sealed" than any other transmission. just no dipstick to check the fluid level.

I do a drain and fill every 30k in all my automatics.

Owners manual recommends changing at 100K. I took my Tundra to the dealership and had them do it at 80K. Early but they had a service special at a very good price.

In the big scheme of things, it's cheap. Do it!

I’ve changed it on several. Just measure exactly what comes out and replace that amount since there is no dipstick obviously. I change it first thing in the morning when the transmission has cold soaked.
