Manual transmissions have a higher friction environment due to the way gears are changed, thus the lubricant is chance.

Not only are the fluids divergent between manual and automatic transmissions but the level of heat the fluids experience is tremendously divergent. Automatic transmissions generate a lot more heat and thus the fluid in your transmission must be changed more normally. If you don't change your Lexus transmission fluid, your transmission will have broken metal shavings and different corrosive material spread throughout the necessary parts of your Lexus. You should normally check the fluid levels between your fluid and transmission flush service intervals.

Call or visit Plaza Lexus for more information if your transmission doesn't contain a dipstick.
