My cousin just got herself a 2002 4Dr prerunner off road with 107,xxx on the clock.

I was wondering is there any issues to look out for, any maintenance I should do. What might happen soon?

Timing belt, if it was replaced along with water pump. Change oil maybe, tranny fluid, flush coolant, etc...

Nothing will happen if you keep it taken care of..

also look for frame rust.

Just keep up with regular maintenance and she should be fine. I'd get it checked out at a dealership just as a precaution.

Can i do a tranny flush with 107,xxx on the clock? That's my main worry. I plan to change all the fluids to synthetic and do spark plugs next weekend.

Even serpitine belt and coolant flush the weekend after.

It's a 4 cyl..no timing belt. It's a chain.

I'd just do plugs, wire, air filter...all fluids and call it a day.

^^^ what he said, I just did it to my truck and switched everything to royal purple, did plugs, deckplate mod, all that stuff.. it literally drives like a new truck... next weekend like I said im gonna check the valves, put new coil packs on the plugs and grease everything up(totally forgot to do that). Moving is a pain in the butt, takes away from truck time lol...
