Question about 2005 Toyota Highlander

1 Answer

I have a 2005 Toyota Highlander V6 2WD. The car is due for a service (90K). The dealer quoted $340.00 for the service and suggested replacement of the timing belt for an additional $400. 1. Doesn't a major service typically include replacement of the belt (pricing seems too high) 2. would it be stupid to pass on the replacement (money is tight)

I guess all services you need is replacement of filters, Oil, spark plugs if not recently changed
Belt replacement is worth at 90K, but price is too high! check this link:
it requires one hour work! or even less
other than this, if you have a service light on, either remove battery pole for a while to reset it, or ignore it and will disappear wft. some time!!!

2005 toyota highlander, what is the correct tire pressure? Cannot get the air pressure light out after pressing the reset button. What do you suggest. I put 32 lbs of air in the tires

Look on the end of the drivers door or door jam for a sticker that should list the pressures and tire size. I had air removed from my tires and installed nitrogen. It keeps the right level better and doesn't cause the sensors to go bad like air can. $5 a tire at most tire dealers.
