How to Keep My Toyota in Good Condition?

Vehicles are built solid and designed to provide many years of continuous use. However, the vehicle depends on the owner to keep it in condition good enough to offer a smooth, stress-free operation without the need for frequent expensive trips to the service center for repairs. To help owners get the most from their vehicle, most manufacturers recommend professional service at 15,000 miles, 30,000 miles, 60,000 miles, and 90,000-miles. Refer to your vehicle owner’s manual to learn the exact service schedule to follow. When you maintain the recommended service schedule for your vehicle, it pays off. You’ll enjoy smoother vehicle operation, fewer breakdowns and repair needs, increased resell value, and so much more!

Recommended Oil Change You’ll need to change the oil in the vehicle every 3,000 to 7,000-miles, depending on the manufacturer recommendations. Most manufacturers recommend changing the oil every 3,000-miles, but some of the newer synthetic oil last longer between changes. But, do not stop with regular oil changes because so many other components need service to continue operating efficiently. Here’s a general breakdown of what you can expect during your scheduled vehicle service appointments.

15,000-Mile Service

The 15,000-mile service is a basic inspection of the components underneath the hood and replacement of any parts that have worn out or that are damaged. Since the vehicle is still relatively new, there isn’t a lot of work necessary at this initial service. The technician should change the oil and the filter as well as replace the air filter. A clogged air filter causes performance issues with the vehicle. Tire inspection and rotation and a battery check are also included in this service, along with replacement fluids.

  • Oil Change - Drained and Replaced
  • Check All Fluid Levels - Top Up as Needed
  • Tires Rotated and Balanced
  • Check Air Filter - Replace as Needed

30,000-Mile Service

Tire Rotation IntervalsThe fuel filter is usually changed at the 30,000-mile service, although this schedule may vary from one model vehicle to another. If the fuel filter becomes clogged, the vehicle may not drive whatsoever! This service recommends replacement of the power steering fluid, a brake inspection, and the usual inspection and repair/replacement of the vehicle’s major components underneath the hood. An inspection of the transmission fluid is also made and if recommended, replaced at this visit.

  • Check Brake Pads - Replace as Needed
  • Suspension and Shock Check
  • Check Fuel Filter - Replace as Needed

60000-Mile Service

Most car batteries average a 50,000 to 60,000-mile lifetime, so there is a good chance a replacement is recommended at this service. It is also time to replace the many hoses, gaskets, and seals underneath the hood since this time point is usually when damage begins. It is likely time to replace the brake fluid, brake pads, and the rotors, so expect this service at the 60,000-mile mark. The engine coolant is serviced at the 60,000-mile service and the transmission fluid and filter are replaced if the service was conducted at the prior service. Once again, the same inspection and repair/replacement of the parts underneath the hood is made.

  • Many of the Same Services from 30,000 Mile Interval
  • Replace Battery as Needed
  • Inspect Brake Rotors - Replace as Needed
  • Check for Wear on Belts and Hoses - Replace as Needed

90,000-Mile Service

Expect the same inspection and repair/replacement recommendations that the vehicle has received at all prior visits again at the 90,000-mile service. Since the vehicle has provided many years of service at this point, the technician should inspect parts and components more closely and in-depth. The timing belt and serpentine belts are replaced at this service, and the ignition system is inspected, looking for any signs of damage. The spark plugs and spark plug wires are also replaced during the 90,000-mile service.

  • Many of the Same Services from 60,000 Mile Interval
  • Top to Bottom Inspection
  • Check Spark Plugs - Replace as Needed
  • Inspect Vehicle Safety Technology Features
