Topic starter

Hi there, I understand changing the transmission fluid could be bad.

2005 Toyota Corolla MANUAL transmission with 180,000 miles.

I dont know history of transmission fluid changes.   Am I safe to drain and fill fluid?  Or am I risking it?

I feel it runs fine, I just wanna do the maintenance since I just got the car.  Thanks

Nope. Totally wrong. Who told you that?

Of course. What could be unsafe about it?

As @mmj stated, what would be unsafe about it.  I think you are confusing automatic transmissions with manual transmissions.  Two, different animals.  With an automatic transmission, changing the fluid can sometimes cause serious problems, but with a manual transmission, changing the oil can only make it better.  Check your owner's manual for the correct weight gear oil required for your transmission.
