    Default 60,000 mile tune up/maintenance

    Hi all,

    I have received so much contradictory information between the maintenance manual, Toyota mechanics, friends that are mechanics, and the dealerships And invariably when I have a question about my truck, I find this forum to be more knowledgeable and helpful than anywhere else...

    So...what EXACTLY should I do maintenance wise at the 60G mile mark? Anything particular I should be aware of? Any suggestions?

    Thanks, all

    Randal Scott

    I did the following after a pretty thorough search on this site:

    Rotate Tires
    Oil & Filter Change (Mobil 1 Synthetic 5w-30)
    Transmission Oil Flush (Mobil 1 Synthetic ATF)
    Brake Fluid Flush (any standard brake fluid)
    Power Steering Fluid Flush (Mobil 1 Synthetic ATF)
    New PCV Valve (Toyota)
    Complete Coolant Flush (Toyota)
    New Fuel Filter (Toyota)
    New Spark Plugs (NGK)
    New Air Filter (Toyota)
    New Serpentine Belt (Toyota)
    Clean Throttle Body
    Drain & Refill F/R Differentials and Transfer Case (Amzoil Synthetic)

    Instructions are available here and/or by purchasing a Haynes Manual for $15. I used both.

    A couple suggestions: The fuel filter was the hardest part, so be patient in working it off. Purchase a pump for the differential/transfer case oil...you will save a ton of time over a turkey baster. The turkey baster works well for sucking up power steering fluid. You can also buy a simple brake bleeder, which is essentially a piece of tubing with a stop-valve to prevent air from getting into the lines while you pump the new fluid through.

    Nicely done MtTrout, as an owner of a Land Cruiser with 210k miles, I'd suggest looking at your hoses and any rubber parts that can either harden or wear over time. Depending on how much you sit in traffic or geography of location, the engine bay can cause a lot of damage just from the temps. Changing out rubber grommet items such as the PCV valve is always easier when the rubber isn't rock hard. Most of those parts are about $10-20 and should easily pay for itself over the long run. Just my thoughts, being a very new owner I'm not looking at doing anything for a year or two... Take care.

    I bought hoses, but ended up taking them back because the current hoses are in great shape. The car is mostly driven to and from the ski hill and travelling around western Montana, so it has very few hard miles. It isn't driven around town, as we have a more fuel efficient toyota car for that. Let us know how your project goes, Robert.
