    Does anyone on here tow with a Montero. I just bought one for the wife but it will also be my tow rig. Any advise would be nice. Thanks Chad

    I don't tow with a Montero but the transmission is basically an Aisin-Warner unit. A variation of this unit is what Toyota uses in their trucks. Its a pretty good unit but like anything else you need to use it properly. Install an auxiliary transmission cooler and use a quality fluid. Change it annually. And only tow in OD if the torque converter clutch doesn't hunt in/out of lockup.

    I would revise Steve's fluid change statement to "annually or every 15,000 miles if heavy towing is involved during that period, whichever comes first"
