    Anyone have a good cheatsheet for keeping their maintenance logged? Like a google doc they can share?

    I used to write everything out on a piece of paper, but now I just snap a picture with my phone so I know the date and what was done. I'm sure you draft an excel spreadsheet pretty quick.

    You can use the typewriter function of Foxit PDF reader and annotate the checklist in the maintenance guide.

    So I decided to re-torque my propeller shaft as part of 15K service coming up soon. I ordered the below set of crowsfoot wrenches only to find that the 14mm was rounding off the bolts, so I returned them. Didn't do 6 of the 8. Any recommendations on a good set that won't round off the bolts?

    I hacked (lol) a Toyota fleet dealers website and found these 2022 update pdfs for OEM part numbers for common maintenance consumables:
    filters, plugs, wipers, etc. Attached:

    I did mine at 35 or 38k. I did several drain and fills. 12qts worth of Redline D6. I'll probably do 1 drain and fill every 40k from here on out now that it's mostly all redline I hate WS junk.

    If you are handy you can do all the above for about $300. Pretty easy to do. I’d probably add the following too.
    1. PCV
    2. Spark Plugs
    3. I’d forget about the fuel thing but would clean the throttle body
    4. Clean MAF
    5. Drain and fill tranny

    His sheet says 29,838 miles. No need to change spark plugs, trans fluid, or pcv valve that early.

    Here’s my 2019 Warranty and Maintenance Guide, page 38 starts the checklist schedule for recommended maintenance. Can be used to document as well.

    I've searched here, and looked at the Toyota parts page, but they're not showing any parts for the '23 model year yet....is the oil filter for the 2023 3.5L the same as in the 2022? My VIN doesn't even work when I input it in the parts page...

    I'd like to pick up the appropriate wrench, a couple of filters and crush washers asap....I'm not waiting for the 10k service.

    Thanks for any help!

    It’s the same engine. The 3.5 engine hasn’t changed from 22 to 23.

    Motivex makes a good oil filter tool and oil funnel.

    I get filters and hardware from the dealer to ensure it’s genuine.

    Thanks...I figured they were the same, but just wanted to verify.

    The Motivex kit is the one I'm looking at....and filters will get at the dealer.

    Thanks again!

    I like your discussion regarding accuracy, however as an engineer, I note that it is not really correct.

    To use your example:
    For a 10-150 ft-lb torque wrench with an industry-standard 20% of full scale accuracy the accuracy is plus or minus 30 ft-lbs of the intended reading (note: 30 ft-lbs is 20% of 150 ft-lbs).

    What this means is that if you set the wrench for 100 ft-lbs the actual torque will range from 70ft-lbs to 130 ft-lbs (plus or minus 30 of what you actually set the wrench for)

    Other examples using the plus or minus 30 ft-lb accuracy are:

    set at 150--actual can range from 120 to 180
    set at 120--actual can range from 90 to 150
    set at 100--actual can range from 70 to 130
    set at 70--actual can range from 40 to 100
    set at 30--actual range from 0 to 60.
    set at 20--actual range from 0 to 50
    set at 10--actual range from 0 to 40.

    From the examples you see that any setting at 30 ft-lbs or lower gives you a low-side range of "0" since you can't have less than "0" torque. What is actually happening is the accuracy band is less than 30 ft-lbs as you reach the lower settings so when you set at 30 the range is probably more like from minus 15 to plus 15 or minus 10 to plus 10.

    You have a similar but opposite issue at the 150 setting--the top range probably is more like -30 to plus 15 or 20.

    Also, most "good" torque wrenches are probably more accurate than 20% of full scale. How much? Who knows?
