I used Castrol BOT 130M in my 20v and felt an immediate difference in gear changes.

20v's take 1.8L to replace the oil

So thats 4 bottles (500ml)

Re: which is best castrol bot 130m vs automatic transmission fluid?

Well 20v gears are abit notchy and oil helped with smoother changes, never had an issue with changes and I was running the OEM clutch from the day it left the factory till the day I sold it at 191...km.

Try the oil, if doesn't help then it could be other causes like linkages, clutch and so forth

I only started changing my oil after 150000km when the daya started servicing the car, and then I replaced it about 2-3 times are that. Never knew I should change it.

Fresh oil is always good

The bot is better then the automatic oil, used both,
results where that the bot stayed smoother for longer then the auto oil, the auto oil was good for a month or so,
bot is great under cold and hot oil temp

The thing there is the toyota oil is meant to last longer and the bot sooner like every 5k km, so stick to the Bot reason is, if you service your car every 10k km or 5k km then change the Gbox oil one time

I wonder why though, cos they change engine oil at every service.
