This seems to be another toyota ripoff--why should I pay to talk on phone when you don't even respond to email that I paid for

sorry had to go out for a bit. No rip off . did you check it's condition with the chart I gave you. What you need to do to check it properly is to run till operating temperature leave in park with emergency on . lift the hood. The dipstick is on the driver's side at front of transmission. Pull it out wipe off and reinsert , then pull out again to read it. It will show on thew dip stick cold and hot level points. As long as it's in the middle it should be fine. to check it's quality just wipe some on a clean white tissue and compare it to the chart I gave you.let me know what you have .I'll be here till 11:00 pm
