1993 Gs300 Transmission Oil

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know what is going on with the transmission oil when it is brown in color? I just bought this car and my experience with transmission oil is supposed to be reddish color. I talked with transmission shops and it was mixed reviews to change it or to leave it since it is "life time" on the oil. Lexus will not say anything until I bring it in but I do not want to get raped on charges just for them to look at it.

Should be red. Should not smell burnt either.

Is is slipping? If no then drain and refill several times a few thousand miles between refills... get it red again.
