Drive it regularly and keep up with the maintenance as you have. I have an '88 Toyota P/U with 70,000 mi. on it and though it did sit up for a good while, regular maintenance has kept it running.
Power? Check the timing and if it is off replace the timing chain. That is all you can do, honestly.

I recently took my 2006 toyota tacoma to the tacoma dealership where i regularly have my oil changed. They recomended to me that I get my power steering flushed, brake fluid flushed, recharge the K&N...


their job is to sell work.however its a good idea to have the brake fluid flushed and the fuel system cleaned.the power steering fluid you don`t have to have flushed,you can if you choose to.you don`t have to have it done at a dealership and it will not void any warranty,if you have extended.

How many miles till transmission service


Hello. Welcome to FixYa. Please allow me to assist you.

The best service you can give your transmission is as follows: Drain and refill the transmission at 30,000 miles. Flush the transmission at 60,000 miles, drain and refill at 90,000, and flush it again at 120,000 miles. That is the same recommendation that I give my customers in our Toyota service department. Following that maintenance schedule, we do not have any transmission failures.

Thanks for choosing FixYa today. I hope that my assistance proves truly useful to you. If so, a 4 thumbs rating for my input would be very nice of you.

After how many miles should I change oil in 2003 Ford F-150,V6, 2WD, regular cab, automatic transmission, gasoline motor pick-up?


It depends on the filter and oil you use. My last Crown Vic had 165000 miles with no problems.

I use the Ford Lube services when there's a sale or Valvoline blended synthetic. Around 4000 mile intervals has been good for me. Never went longer than 5000 miles on anything I have owned. I have owned over 50 vehicles, never had lube failure.

The maintenance interval for all Toyota timing belts is as follows:

2000 and up: Replace every 90,000 miles

1999 and back: Replace every 60,000 miles.

We hope that this helps.

30000 mile service


Yes.
My dealership charges about $325.00 for a 30K. Please describe what services that they are providing that would justify $500.00. That is out of line, IMHO.

Regular maintenance


If you had the 30,000 mile maintenance done, nothing of any real importance, just oil change, tire rotation, check air filter, check all fluids, tire pressures, etc. 30-60-90 K miles are important.
