Default 2005 toyota camry transmission oil and filter change

I just changed my transission fluid and filter.

Fluid is the import type IV that can be purchased at Autozone for $5/
quart
I purchased
The manual says that <4 quarts is needed if you drain and refill.
With the filter, the capacity needed was 6 quarts exactly.
Taking the transmission pan down waas tricky since one row (about 4
bolts) was difficult to reach because the frame was right against
them. You have to put a jack stand to lift the transmission up
slightly and then use a box wrench on those bolts.
The filter costs $48 at Napa or the Toyota dealer.
Pep Boys has a Purolator filter for $24, but it was the wrong filter.

My fluid was totally black after 66,000 miles.
Just bought the car.
Now it is beautiful

Matt

Having "totally black" fluid even after 66,000 miles should be
somewhat of a concern. Any idea of how the car was used before you
purchased it?

Does Autozone sell the actual Toyota Type IV fluid, or is the fluid at
Autozone fluid an equivalent from another supplier? Did you happen to
notice if they had the newer WS Toyota Fluid in stock?

Black at 66000, did you do all the driving because it has been run to
hot and hard, consider a trans temp gauge and cooler. Does it have a
drain plug, if so drain some out about every 10000, and on your next
oil change since not all of it was removed, but black at milage is
wrong. Heat and hard driving kills transmissions. Is your antifreeze
no more than 50% antifreeze,,Redline Water Wetter makes the cooling
system run about 10f cooler.
