    LSB was also complaining about this on his Vios also because any self respecting car guy will not feel at ease without changing his ATF during the times he feels it should be changed (or as specified). I myself had a not-so-great experience with a BMW E36 before when i was told by the SA at BMW that there was no need to change the ATF; "lifetime" daw. A few months later, the tranny failed and a post mortem showed that there was some water contamination; something an ATF flush could have saved.

    From what i gather, the press release is that WS is not similar in spec to the mineral based T-IV. However, some owners using a Toyota Tundra in the US have switched to another oil and so far reported that their transmissions were running fine. Whether we would try it or not, I will have to experience it firsthand with another car before doing the plunge on mine. One thing to consider though is that given that the Gen 10 Altis is a 4-speed and is using the ZZ engine similar to the 9th Gen Corolla, i'm thinking that the T-IV transmission fluid is still compatible.

    If you confirm though that the WS is what's used in your car, and your car is driven normally with no towing or carrying of heavy loads, and it doesn't ford deep floods, then you can consider extending your ATF drain interval (i.e. instead of draining at 40,000kms, change it at 80,000kms). Then you change using the Toyota WS. Even if you pay more, at least the intervals are longer.

    Here are some tidbits that can probably help since it shows the transmission codes and you can try to match it up with the one on your Altis: (from G6 Automobile - Products & Equipments)
    Found my answer already. The 10th gen altis 1.8 uses a WS fluid. It's written in the atf dipstick btw.

    Re. the caliper noise of the Altis. I'm thinking of changing the caliper pins as i inquired at Toyota and they cost roughly P200++ each (less than P300).

    I saw the all new Toyota Corolla at a mall display in ATC. It had aero body add-ons (or is it stock?). It looks good, and "very-euro" ....

    I wonder if Toyota will go all out and stuff a V6 Camry engine in there.


    Wicked .......... :naughty2:

    Thanks for the reply sir. Ah I see, mine is G variant. Hope someone who has the same variant as mine can verify this. Parang naweirduhan lang talaga ko na ngayon ko lang siya napansin.

    Any idea kung anu yun tawag dun sa cover?

    Sir vinj, eto ba when you step on the brakes may maririnig kang "tok" even inside the cabin with windows closed?

    Mine is a 10th gen V variant. I have one. It's just a trunk insulator. It's made of polycarbonated like plastic then wrapped with a thin layer carpet finish as same as the trunk if thats what you want to know.

    A little OT, but how do I compute for gas consumption when the car is idling?

    For our Gen 10, how much litres would it consume idling for 30 minutes?

    That's the noise. It's a common problem with the Gen10/10.5.

    The only way to do so is tank up at the gas station. Park. Idle for 30 mins then tank up again.
