Postby BassetVIBEs1984 » Sat Apr 29, 2017 5:33 am

Id like some help on getting the right fluids for my first service interval on the car.
1.) Engine oil, specs and quantity
2.) Gearbox fluid, specs and quantity
3.) Coolant, specs and quantity

1) Oil is 5w30. Just a hair under 5 quarts with a GT...Filter is a Toyota F1. Brand is your choice. There's really no difference one way or the other anymore.
2) Gear Oil...Syncromesh. It takes about 2.3 quarts.
3) Coolant. Toyota pink.

The owner's manual lists all of the GM specs...Most recommend to follow Toyota's specs for the coolant and other fluids.
Ruby- 03 Salsa, Ray[is]AWD- 04 Salsa AWD, Simon- 03 Silver "Faux by Four"
Raven- 03 Abyss GT, Neptune- 05 AWD, Robyn- 07 Stealth Gray Metallic, Mystic- 09 AWD
