Bought the 05VR used and I don't believe the tranny fluid has been flushed. I took it to a few indies but they said it can't be done.???:confused: is this accurate? If not. Can someone local show me how this is done? I'll supply beer and pizza. Thx

NorCal, never mind.

THe process is pretty straight forward, you could follow the IPD directions or written directions posted somewhere here.
Search Gibbons method.

Thanks for the link gents. Since im doing 12-14 qts of this stuff. What fluid is more economical to use? iPD recommends Mobile ATF 3309 but there is also a Toyota fluid type III or Type IV. Thanks again

Use Toyota Type IV it's the same exact thing as 3309.

To clarify for the 05V70 with auto tranny.

Where do I plug the clear flush hose? Is it to the end of of the lower or upper radiator return line?

You use the lower radiator line.
