Proper AT Service Interval


Recommended Posts

My 2003 Corolla has 60K miles. The transmission was serviced 26 months ago at 48K miles. Its been done fairly regularly (every 2-3 years) since the car was new. The dealer is pushing to do it again. I do live in AZ and the car is driven primarily short drives in town, rarely any distance at high speed. Can anyone make a recommendation for service interval?

Under normal operating conditions you manual says to change the fluid as needed based on appearance (no prescribed distance or time). Under special conditions (like the type of driving you seem to be doing) replace at 60,000 miles. You may be in a dusty area and may, based on the appearance of the fluid, change it more regularly like every 30K. I doubt whether you need it more frequently than that.
