I couldn't find the manual for the 2005, the 2006 says the automatic transmission should be inspected every 24,000 km (15,000 mi) and changed every 60,000 km (37,500 mi).
The manual transmission should be inspected every 48,000 km (30,000 mi) and has no recommended change within 180,000 km (112,500 mi) where the maintenance schedule ends.
TO RESET, MOST VEHICLES TURN ON THE IGNITION SWITCH, [DO NOT START THE ENGINE ] PRESS THE GAS PEDAL TO THE FLOOR 3 TIMES, THE LIGHT SHOULD GO OUT. IF THAT DOESN'T WORK, YOU CAN DISCONNECT THE NEG. BATTERY CABLE FOR A MINUTE THEN RECONNECT, START THE ENGINE, THE LIGHT SHOULD BE OUT
a proper service ,not a dealer type all new parts but a fleet vehicle type service ,all wheels off rotate tyres ,back brake drums off ,clean bulbs in back lights oil everything in sight ,check antifreeze for acidity change brake fluid if vehicle more that 4 yrs old ,In fact everything including cleaning under back seat ,check and clean as necessary is the order of the day not just change it all as this cost money
The fuel filter should be replaced and all fuel system hoses and connection should be inspected at 12,000 mile (19,000 km) interval for carburetor equipped models, and 30,000 mile (48,300 km) intervals for fuel injected models. When the vehicle is operated in extremely cold or hot conditions, contamination of the filter may occur and the filter should be replaced more often.
Follow the service intervals recommended in your manual.
Engine oil and filter every 5,000 km
Inspect brake system, steering components and wheel hub every 30,000 KM
Transmission oil and filter, differential and transfer-case service every 80,000 KM
Service the cooling system every 150,000 KM or 5 years
These are just the common major service intervals to the drive train to keep the car running to the maximum life expectancy, and replace any worn parts that may affect the safe operation of the car. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to answer any other questions you may have.
Hello Ben, Service intervals in North America are oil changes at 8000 km, schedule maint with cabin filters and air intake filters, tire rotation and brake inspection, at 16,000km intervals.Given where you are located under extreme heat you could advance the intervals by 20% early. If you have your manual package this will be detailed inside. Toyota developed a high grade oil filter years ago with exceptional filtration. If you decide to use aftermarket filters change oil around 5,000 km instead. Don't touch electronics until the vehicle indicates and issue. Trans fluid around 72,000 should be fine. All these should be outlined in your manuals and in theh warranty cover booklet as well. You have chosen and EXCELLENT vehicle
