I still haven't seen anything to explain a viscosity change in transmission fluid. Is it hydroscopic? Changing temperature... how does that affect it other than overheating in which case there's a clear indication of need for change due to the additive package changing color.
Transmission fluid doesn't have the same shearing of molecules as does engine oil, which does change viscosity--some.

“After years and thousands of miles of the same fluid sitting in the bottom of your transmission it stands to reason newer fluid would not be subject to the constant changes in temperature, moisture content etc. that would all change the viscosity of the fluid. You don't have to be a "Chemist" to figure this out.” I guess it’s true because you said so. Ok now I get it “act as if” even if it‘s wrong. Spread the internet truth! Check what the ATF viscosity is and what affects it. FYI viscosity is for the purpose of measuring flow.

Whatever floats your boat man! I wouldn't change it then.

On the 09-newer Corolla there is another place under the hood where mice can enter the cabin area of the car: Look down behind the engine where the grey A/C lines pass through the firewall. Just above the lines where the poorly placed foam is supposed to seal off the hole, there is just enough gap in the foam for a mouse to squeeze through. Plug it off with silicone.

Jul 15, 2012 (8:02 am)
I have 2001 Toyota, Corolla. it has 104,000miles. last time I had tune up was in 60K miles. Should I get tune up done now that it has hit over 100k miles. What should tune-up include? Also, I recently had breaks replaced, tires changed second time, first changed them at 50K, since then when ever I break very fast, push break to the end it makes knocking noise like 'tuck, tuck' I showed it to couple of mechanics and a transmission specialist they have no idea what that noise is from. I would appreciate if someone can help me.
I love the car, bought it brand new in 2000, no accidents, it has been so good to me, great with gas.
Thank u so much!!

Okay, I give up ! What's an induction service? Is that where they "induct" you into the Toyota Hall of Fame?

They spray Magic Fluid into your intake to clean your already clean injectors and dissolve non-existent carbon in your engine so that you're already smooth running engine will run smoother and your gas mileage will go up but not enough for NASA to measure. $150 please.
