Changing spark plugs on 2004 matrix, is it something i can do at home or do i need more technical know how. if i can please explain the proceedure. thanks

Hi, the 2004 Toyota Matrix requires Iridium spark plugs, which retails for about $12 at the dealership, and it should not need to be changed until 120,000 miles.
To change the spark plug, remove the black cove off the top and they will be right there. You will probably need atleast an 8" extender to get to them becasue they don't have Spark Plug wires atleast on the 2zz-ge aka XRS Motor I do Not Know aboout The 1zz-fe AKA Matrix, XR, AWD

Maint required light just came on .....2008 toyota this a bad sign or a minimal problem

The maintenance required light lets you know its time for an oil change. Once the oil is changed the light can be reset. The light will usually blink for a few seconds as you approach the 5,000 mile mark and then stay on steady as the 5,000 mile mark is reached or surpassed.

Car maker says to change trans fluid every 100k, fluid manufacturer says every 30k ??????

Hello. Welcome to FixYa. Please allow me to assist you.
On your Matrix, if you have a transmission dipstick, you do not have 100,000 mile transmission fluid. All Toyota vehicles that have the long-life fluid do not have a dipstick installed.
We recommend that the ATF be drained and refilled at 30K miles, and flushed at 60 K mile intervals. Using this maintenance regimen, we never rebuild any transmissions.
Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance. If my assistance proves useful, please consider a 4 thumbs rating for me. I'd greatly appreciate it. Have a great day.

2005 matrix with 65k miles. any critical maintenance coming up? car is running fine.

60 k should include oil change, rotate tires, some filters (air, cabin air..etc), brake inspection, as well as a overall general check. Your next major maintenance will be at 100 k. Just keep up your reg. maintenance. You'll find the Toyota Matrix is a very dependable vehicle.

I have a 2007 toyota matrix. I would like to know what kind of service is needed at 25,000 miles and what is the cost?? thanks

Do an oil change every 4 to 5000 miles. Check air filter and replace if necessary. Do tire rotation every 5000 miles especially if you have warranty on tires. The manual will list some other stuff but I would only be concern with the above. 25,000 miles is not a lot of mileage. Probably looking at $40. Please ask any other concerns.

Toyota Matrix Check engine light is on

Is it a check engine light or Maintenance Required light? If its the maintenance required light, turn the car off, push and hold the trip odometer button while turning the ignition back on. Don't start the car. You'll see five dashes that will count down to none. That'll reset the maintenance required light. Do it after every oil change and it'll come on when its time for an oil change.
