I am trying to find out if the rear diff on my petrol GX (2002/03) is a top up only or I can drain & replace the Oil? Been told some do & some don't,

anyone knows?

I have looked at some downloads I have from toyota EU but they all mention toyota USA in the docs so I am not sure!

thanks

If it has Oil in it, and there's a drain plug, i would replace it,  every Oil degrades over time, and this is no different.

Drain and refill every 20000miles - the diff holds just under 1 litre. Use 80W90 transmission Oil to GL5 specification. As with all gearboxes, differentials etc - ensure that you can remove the filler plug before removing the drain plug.

I plan to drain & refill if the rear axle has a drain plug.

thank you for your feedback

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
