    Alright, as part of my 4R's refresh project I am going to have the transmission flushed with new fluid. I've been trying to figure out what I need but the information seems limited...

    What parts do I need? Any gaskets, washers? The filter? Does anyone know the part numbers for them? What fluid does she need?

    Try a search. There are a few well documented threads on this. Also at the other T4R site.

    A flush requires the pan to be in place. A flush does not require the pan to be removed and does not require gaskets.

    Get the fluid from the Toyota dealer. ATF WS for the 4th gen.

    I just did the 4qt pan drain, pan gaskets, metal screen and o-ring. All good. A flush is a 12-15 qt event and requires opening the trans cooler lines.

    I've found information on the 4th gens, but not he 3rd. Do the 3rd's use WS or that Toyota IV? And I do want to drop the pan and to have the filter changed, so I presume there is a gasket that would need to be replaced and maybe some crush washers?

    I will check the other site.
