Carl Writes: I have a 2004 Sequoia and I want to know if I can begin using Synthetic Trans Fluid. How can I drain the regular fluid out? I have 78k miles and I want another reliable 150k out of it.
Carl, if you have been doing your maintenance all along, and continue to do it, then 250k reliable miles is a doable number. As far as your transmission goes, take it in to a shop or dealer and have the transmission flushed and go back with synthetic fluid. Doing this should dramatically extend the life of that transmission. Changing to synthetic fluid is almost always better in the long run. This goes for all of the fluids, including the brake fluid.
