The time on yours more than miles affects the coolant, it should be changed every 5 years or 100,000 miles.

What do I need to have done for the 60,000 miles maintainance?


The following items are recommended on your vehicle at 60k miles. Automotive Maintenance is very important to the longevity of your vehicle.

1. Change Engine Oil
2. Inspect Brakes
3. Replace Engine Air Filter
4. Replace Spark Plugs and Wires
5. Inspect tie rod ends and boot seals
6. Inspect and if necessary replace the PCV Valve
7. Adjust generator belt
8. Flush the Automatic Transmission Fluid and Filter
9. Flush the Cooling System (Coolant)

None of these services are ABSOLUTELY required, but are essential in keeping your car running to the best of it's ability.

We just bought a 2006 Highlander with 60,000 miles +/- Need to know what should have been done as far as reg. maintanace, nothing seems to be wrong in fact we have no inmidiate concerns, but would like to...


There is not a lot due at 60,000 miles as far as regular maintenance. Depending on which engine you have, a timing belt replacement is due at 90,000 miles. (The 2.4L engine is chain-driven) Spark plug replacements are not due until 80,000 miles.

In the meantime, I would have the condition of the engine coolant checked. It should be checked for the freeze protection level as well as the acidity level. Chemical test strips are available at your local parts store for this purpose.

All fluids should be checked for proper levels inlcluding differentials and transfer cases if it is a 4X4. Check and fix any fluid leaks right away. Fluid leaks can lead to rapid deterioration of rubber mounts and hoses as well as damage wiring harnesses and computer sensors.

If the battery is original it should probably be replaced due to the age of the vehicle. If it is not original I would have it tested. Remember NOTHING works on your vehicle without the battery.

What is the recommended service for 2004 chevy


Service your cooling system every 5 years or 150,000 miles. The GM Dex Cool has a life of 5 years or 150,000 miles which ever comes first. Replace the thermostat also and buy the fail safe thermostat, it cost a bit more but worth it.

Service the engine (spark plugs and wire) every 100,000 miles or till engine management prompt attention. (service engine light DTC code)

Service the transmission every 3 years or 60,000 miles, replace the transmission oil and filter. Transfer case fluid and differential fluid.

Service the engine oil and filter every 6 months or 3,000 miles. Lube Chassis

Service the air filter and cabin air filter, wiper blades every 15,000 miles or once a year.

What type of maintenance my car would need after 90,000 miles


There is no special service needed at 90,000 miles other than the normal Air Filter & Cabin Filter replacement every 30,000 miles. Inspect all drive belts and hoses. You do need to replace Brake Fluid every 3 years independent of mileage. At 110,000 miles replace the spark plugs on a 4 cylinder, 105,000 on a V6. Replace engine coolant at 120,000 or 10 years on both engines. Replace A/T fluid at 60,000 miles. On the V6 at 105,000 miles replace the Cam belt and Water Pump. The 4 cylinder has a chain that you replace when it is noisy or you cannot keep the engine in time.

Tune up


At 60,000 you should have all the major things done if you haven't already:
oil change(every 3000)
air filter change(every 15,000)
coolant flush(every 30,000)
spark plugs and wires(every 30,000)
transmission fluid & filter change(every 30,000)
brakes (as needed)
PCV valve (every 20,000)

You can wait until about 75000 miles to do your timing belt.

Hope this helps
