2002 Toyota Tacoma Automatic Transmission fluid choice

59287 Views 12 Replies 9 Participants Last post by  DWM
I am getting ready to do a drain/refill of the automatic transmission in my 2002 Toyota Tacoma Prerunner double cab. I had been under the impression (for some reason) that it required a Toyota-specific tranny fluid. However, I just got out the owner's manual and it specs "Automatic transmission fluid D-II or DEXRON III (DEXRON II)".

So my question is this: Is it worthwhile to go with Mobil 1 synthetic? Or is it ok to just use a name brand tranny fluid? I use Mobil 1 oil in the engine.

I need something I can buy locally, because I plan to do this tommorow.

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

What if you have 100k miles and have never done it at all?
