Most car dealers recommend maintenance services at 30K, 60K, 90K and so on. The 30K service is mainly focused in inspection of the systems and replace of the fuel filter.
The 60K is expensive for cars with timing belt. The coolant, transmission oil and filter, and the brake fluid has to be changed. The air filter and spark plugs has to be replaced at this time too.
Most costly is the replacement of the timing belt. Volvo recommends for Volvo 240, changing the timing belt every 50,000 miles. Needless to say, they are pretty religious about this now.
The B20, B21, B23, and B230 engines are non-interference engines, meaning that the camshaft can be rotated independently of the crankshaft and no damage will result to the engine. That is, if the timing belt breaks, the valves will not hit the pistons; the engine will simply stop.
On the other hand, the B234 16-valve engines and any of the other Volvo multi valve engines are interference engines. Loss of the timing belt in these engines will result in severe or fatal engine damage.

2004 camry with 104,000 miles, no problems just wondering what needs maintenance needs to be done?


Depends on what you have done so far.
The transmission fluid should have been replaced, the timing belt and water pump, spark plugs, serpentine belt, radiator hoses, and fuel filter should have been replaced at 75,000 miles or before.
There should be a maintenance schedule in the back of your owners manual with some guides.

I am trying to find a maintenance schedule for my 2003 Passat...it has almost 130K miles on it, but everywhere I look the maintenance schedules stop at 100K. Any help is greatly appreciated!!


The 100K schedule repeats continually.
What needs to be done at 50K and 100K, then needs to be repeated at 150K for example.
The schedule only needs to go out to the longest delayed item.

Does a 2003 subaru impreza have a chain or belt timing belt? what is the maintenance schedule?


It has a belt, and it is supposed to be done at 60,000 miles. It is a job but it can be done by a patient owner. You can't rush it, you will need the book, a Haynes manual or something like that. the shop will charge about 3 to $400 for it. I think the water pump gets done and the belt tensioner, not sure. Check it out, Hope this helps.

35,000 mile check up what should I have done?


Hello. If you have the owner manual it will have the maintenance schedule in it. If you do not, go to any chevy dealership service window and ask them to make you a photocopy of your car's maintenance schedule. Joe

I have a 2004 Yukon. I did not change the diff


Not unless you noticed an unusual amount of debris or dirt when you changed it at 86,000. If you want to shorten up the mileage between changes to get back on schedule then feel free, but you don't have to change it because you were late. If you are doing a lot of extreme driving, city or 4 wheeling you may want to shorten up the intervals. Hope this helps.
