    Hey everyone, newbie here... Driving an 06 Tacoma and loving it... My Tacoma's just about ready for the 30,000 mile service... I was about to take it to my dealer but my friend suggested i do it myself... i didnt even know you could do that! He says its more gratifying that way...

    Anyway he suggested going to a forum and asking people whats included in the 30K service for Tacomas... i'm really nervous about doing this but i dont know we'll see what happens... So if you can... can you let me know what i need to do to service my Tacoma for 30,000 miles???

    Also, if all else fails or if i chicken out, can you let me know of any dealers in around Los Angeles who i can really honestly genuinely trust??? Norwalk Toyota's near my work so it's convenient BUT, i wanna be sure they're legit.. you can check them out here --> http://www.norwalktoyota.com/

    if you've heard of them or any other dealers around LA let me know!

    First things first though. I gotta find out if i can handle doing a 30K service on my own so your help would be much appreciated.. Thanks in advance!!!

    yes you can do it on your own and i'm sure others will chime in on that. i got my 30k service done a couple days ago at Hooman Toyota in Long Beach. never been to norwalk toyota but Long Beach Toyota has always had good service.

    Change Air filter

    Just had this done Saturday at Maroone Toyota in Weston, Florida. Ended up being something like $240.00, but my service rep throws in goodies like the nitrogen (purigen) tire fill etc...

    I got my 30k service done today by the dealer and I also had them do the rear spring TSB. Paid 650 (I'm not that much of a DIY-er and not alot of spare time, plus not mechanically inclined too)so I figure that if I got the TSB done (which is a 1500-2000 repair for free), then it was okay for me to pay the dealer to do my 30k service.

    I know. It just wasn't the 30k service, they also did some other fluids. It was like 200ish in parts and the rest was labor :(

    You will see a nut under the transfer case. Its the drain. Remove the Fill plug FIRST., then remove the drain plug. Let the oil drain out. Install the drain plug, and fill to the requiered level, and put the fill plug back in. :)

    You work at Maroone? I dont make it to Weston too often, as I live in Coral Springs and work in Deerfield Beach. I was at Maroone Saturday morning (9:30 a.m.) and finally left around 2:00 p.m.

    There are a few dealerships alot closer, but Maroone seems to be the best so far...

    I have the 4 volume Toyota manuals, and would have to look inot specifics regarding the torque specs etc... I take mine to the dealer because I drive it hard, and want to keep atleast portions of the warranty intact.

    Near the tranny/transfer case, you will see bolts that connect the drive shaft. I just stick a wrench on them, and give a tug. If they are not loose, they are fine. :)
