Transmission Fluid for Toyota Camry 70

Changing the oil in a Toyota Camry automatic transmission 70, as well as in the predecessors of the 70s, is accompanied by a controversial opinion about replacing the transmission fluid, and entails one main question - whether it is necessary to change the oil in the box at all, because the manufacturer, represented by an official dealer, claims that gearboxes in the Camry V70 are not serviced for the entire period of operation.

But after the appearance of some problems in the automatic transmission while driving when switching from the 1st to the 2nd and from the 2nd to the 3rd and vice versa - the owners of Camry XV70 cars have questions. This problem concerns not only cars with mileage of more than 62,000 miles, but new, warranty cars with mileage of more than 6,200 miles, or even less.

Kicks, by the way, are also possible after changing the oil, which is associated with underfilling of the transmission fluid during the replacement

The fact is that Toyota is not a Toyota Camry transmission manufacturer. As with other models, AISIN manufactures and supplies gearboxes.

When to change

This is the most controversial issue, and perhaps the only one that determines the further technical condition of the gearbox.

Over time, the oil wears out, and if once almost all owners knew that the oil in the box must be replaced after 37-50,000 miles, or after 2 years, now some owners of modern cars mistakenly believe that the oil does not change at all. Although the design in the box has not globally changed, and the friction of parts has remained relevant when the transmission is running.

By the way, even if the car will stand idle with new oil for 2 years, after this period it must be replaced, since over time it loses its lubricating properties and after 24 months becomes completely unsuitable for effective use. In addition, the higher the working temperature of the fluid, the faster it wears out.

What does the manufacturer advise owners of cars with automatic transmission Aisin ?!

All Camry 70 boxes are manufactured under the same conditions, and each has a resource of 186,000 miles! But there is one thing, the first persons of the manufacturing company claim: in order to achieve such mileage without problematic trips, an oil change in the Toyota Camry 70 automatic transmission must go through every second MOT or 12,000 miles.

In this case, this applies to the entire Camry V70 lineup.:

  • Camry 2.0 (6AR-FSE) ASV71 with 6-speed automatic transmission Aisin U760E;
  • Camry 2.5 (2AR-FE) ASV70 with the same 6-speed U760E;
  • Camry 3.5 V6 (2GR-FE) GSV70 with 8-speed UA80E Aisin hydraulic;

Of course, when changing the oil in an automatic transmission is your business, but for trouble-free kilometers, it is better to listen to the manufacturer's recommendations. In addition, the first major problems with the automatic transmission occur after 62,000 miles, when the warranty period ends, and expensive repairs are paid from your own pocket.

What kind of oil to fill

Toyota Camry 70 automatic transmission recommends filling in ATF transmission fluid with T-WS or T4 approval, while these ATF fluids can be mixed.
