#1708 of 5282 Transmission Fluid, Dexron III or Type T-4 for LX470
Apr 18, 2002 (4:50 am)
Can someone enlighten me with this question? Is the Toyota Type T-IV ATF good for the 1998- 2002 Lexus LX470 and Toyota Land Cruisers? The manual for the these trucks suggests Dextron III. My confusion stems from my old 1996 LS400 operator's manual which recommends the use of Dextron III but everyone on the LS400 forum including the dealer highly recommended the Type T-4 tranny fluid for smooth shifting.
Thanks for your help on this in advance.

This isn't the place to buy and sell - you might want to take this into private email.

Who's got a high mileage 100 Series and what repairs/problems have you encountered (if any) as the mileage goes 6-digits plus?

Demo Toyotas can (and often) have anywhere from 10 miles to 12,000 miles on them. Just check the registration or DMV printout. The car should have been registered in the name of the dealership to be a true DEMO.

My dealer told me the same thing - fixing heatshield only covered under 3/36 warranty. Have service rep print out - TSB EG005-00 JUN 00 Exhaust - Rattle Noise. You can look at parts list (clamps and little rubber spacers) and decide whether to do yourself, or not.
#1716 of 5282 fuel requirements

Can someone tell me what grade fuel is required for the current generation landcruiser? Do they all require premium grade? Thanks.

The usual time frame that it takes to get to 6 digit mileage 15k a yr would be 6.7 years. While I have had 6 digit mileage, (250k app ) this was on a 1987 TLC, FJ60 series. So as you can see, the series as a tendency to change. This particular model before it was sold had app $2,200. in unscheduled maintenance.
The recommended fuel is the premium fuel or 91/92 octane. The truth is that since the engine is computer controlled, it will run on 87 octane, obviously with correspondingly almost imperceivable loss of power and performance.
