Gearbox oil and/or powersteering fluid change?


Recommended Posts


I have a Corolla Verso from 2006 (2.2D4D), manual 6 gears. The service book mentions nothing about the interval of the gearbox oil change and the powersteering fluid. Spoke to a Toyota guy and he seems to think that the powersteering fluid should never be changed and couldn't tell me the frequency of the gearbox oil. Does any forum members have advice on this? The car has done nearly 80K miles. Thanks in advance.

Hey Nick,

My corolla has EPS so no fluid to worry about. As for gear oil, there's nothing in the users manual but I changed mines after I bought it at 79K miles, I don’t think it was ever changed, it was really black, gear changes were just little smoother after. Then I changed it after another 2 or 3 years and it wasn’t so bad, dark brown and made no difference to gear change.

I don’t think you need to regularly, it’s coming up to 4 years now since the last change, I might do it next year.
