My 06 has 360k on it. Fluid wasnt changed until well over 275. Still working great. Tows as much as it drives unloaded to.
There's a pretty good writeup on the DIY procedure here https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/how-to-drain-refill-automatic-transmission.63851/I prefer to do a measured drain and fill. Just measure whatever comes out of the drain plug, fill it with the same amount, drive around a while and repeat the process 2 or 3 timesI use valvoline maxlife ATF as do many others, it costs a lot less than Toyota fluid and is arguably just as goodpersonally, I would drain/fill every 50-60. I don't believe in lifetime fluid
Change.Drop pan and change filter.Flush doesn't change filter (flush is a cash cow)
... I'm still on the fence...
You can do the simple but messy flush at home Ö. The joys of "Do It Yourself".
