Is there a SIMPLE Maintenance schedule for a 2004 Prius

Is there a SIMPLE Maintenance schedule after 120,000 miles? Do I just start over? I cannot afford my local dealer every 5,000 miles.

    Thanks- you sent me to a great site. I don't want to do all the
    maintenance myself but I need to know when to take it to someone-
    besides the dealer.

Will experienced Honda owners share best practices with a young family driving a 2004 Accord?


Tire-Go by the label on the door jam on the driver's door
Oil-Follow the manufacturer's recommendation in the owner's manual
Maintenance-Today's cars usually come with a maintenance schedule. Follow the proper maintenance for the mileage your car currently has on it.
If that puppy has only 45,000 miles on it, the timing chain shouldn't have to be replaced until it's between 120,000 and 150,000 miles.

What is the yearly maintenance for a mitsubishi ecipse


Maintenance schedules are usually not on a yearly schedule. They are based on miles or months (whichever comes first) and what services are required depend on how much you drive your car. If you down load a factory service manual it will tell you at what mile/month intervals to do maintenance.

Do I need an EFI cleaning or a brake fluid


I may be overstepping my boudaries here but if its not in the maintenance guide i see no reason for NEED of these items, preventative maintenance maybe but only suggested should be the line here, unless they can prove you need it as in contaminated or drivability problem diagnosed, just my opinion

At what mileage should the timing belt be replaced on a 2005 Chrysler Sebring 4 cyl? Does the tensioner need to be replaced as well?


Depending on how the car is driven (outside temp, towing, stop and go, dusty, etc...) the maintenance schedule states either 90.000 miles or 120,000 miles. If any one harsh driving condition applies, chrysler recommends 90,000 miles. The only mention of the tensioner needing replaced is if the belt was damaged due to misalignment.
Hope this helps.

I have heard that you NEVER need to replace the rear brakes on a Prius. Is this true?


That is TOTALLY false. The rear brakes will wear out just as the fronts on the prius. Have them checked every 20 to 30,000 miles.
