You may be able to find more sources for information and even better prices for parts if you look for Toyota 3.0l V6. You should also have more options if you decide to go the junk yard route.

When in doubt do a transmission fluid drain and fill as soon as possible. It takes less than half hour and costs less than $20, just under 4 qts. It'll be the best $ you ever spent.

Is valve adjustment part of the routine maintenance for the RX? No one seems to talk about it and ours hasn't ever needed one, even after 177000 miles. What am I missing?
