    Hey guys, I'm not on here very often due to a busy life style. However when i do visit the site i always find very useful information and endup spending days on here just to read it all. For that I thank you all.

    I was wondering though if it would be possible for some of the more experienced members to do a write up for the 30K mile service. Mine is comming up and i know i can do it my self with some instructions. I've been letting my pops do the 5000 mile oil changes, but to be honest with you i don't think he does much else besides the oil change, which concerns me:(. I know i can take it to the dealer but i have a strong feeling that it will run me a good $500, and thats something that would be hard to cough up with todays economy. Can anyone help?? Or maybe direct me to a site where this might be done already? Any input will helpfull. Thank you all in advance.

    Wow thank you a whole lot that helps a bunch. I do have a question though the propeller bolts which ones do i need to re-torque and would you happen to know what the required torque is?
    also would anyone happen to know how to replace the transfer case oil, and what does toyota mean by lubricating the propellar shaft?

    To replace the transfer case oil, is the same as the rear diff. Remove the oil fill plug, then remove the drain plug. Let the fluid drain completly, then, put the drain plug back in, and fill until it comes out the fill hole. :)

    Thank you Jrez that sounds pretty simple. When it somes to the trans fluid i thought that with an automatic tranny u don't have to replace the oil till it hits 100k. does that sound right?
