Ls400 Autobox Oil Change Note!

Recommended Posts

Hi all,as the title says,been speaking to a lexus fitter whos been working for them since the beginning of the lexus age.NOTE anyone whos going to drain and change there auto gearbox oil,ONLY USE LEXUS AUTO TRANSMISSION OIL,he tells me that if you buy any other oil how ever good it is,because some of the old oil will stay in the box,when mixed together it will turn into a sort of gel and damage the box,a new box will have to be fitted(not cheap).He says the oils look the same but have different ingredients,so get Lexus auto transmission only,youve been warned.Hope thats of some help to us all. :winky:

This is for all the auto transmissions used in Lexus models. There are warning notices about this within the owners manuals. Others oils can also damage the seals within the gearbox.
