Once again the old myth about not changing automatic trans fluid on older transmissions rears it's ugly and misguided head. I don't know where that particular piece of lousy advice started, but it's a myth pure and simple.

Toss the old fluid and install fresh Toyota Type IV and be done with it.

Also remember that you can change 2 quarts out every other oil change. The drain plug on the transmission pan will allow exactly 2 quarts to drain out to be replaced with 2 quarts fresh. This way you always have fresher fluid between a full blown drop the pan and filter change. Toyota Type IV only!
