    Hey TW:

    I had some questions about maintinence. So I need a 90k service and I havent got a quote yet but I want them to do the Timing Belt, Waterpump, Tranny flush and what not.

    But I want to do some of the cheaper, easier things. What are some of the things I can do to help my Tacoma live strong!

    The items I added above (in bold) are things that will be apart at the same time - have it all done at once.

    Other things? Front diff, rear diff, transfer case oil changes. Fuel filter change. Spark plugs changed, Lubricate drive shafts.

    It really comes down to how often you change/check other things. You do have some of this on your list already, but this is stuff that really should be checked out once in a while. Granted that some people may do more/less, this is a start.

    This is my basic maintenance list (I do it by month since its easier for me to schedule and I dont drive enough to go over the mileage):
    3 Month Check
    Check Tire pressure
    Check Brakes
    Check CV Boots/Ball Joints
    Check AF
    Check ATF
    Check PS
    Check Washer
    Check Belts/Hoses

    3 Month Maintenance
    Change Oil/Filter
    Grease Driveshaft zerks
    Rotate Tires
    Clean Air Filter (K&N reusable)

    24 Month Maintenance
    Replace Spark Plugs/check wires
    Clean Throttle Body
    Replace AntiFreeze
    Replace Diff Oil
    Replace ATF
    Replace Power Steering Fluid

    6 Year Maintenance
    Replace Timing Belt/Water pump/belts/hoses

    (if someone has suggestions to add to my list, please dont hesitate to share)

    Aside from what we've already told you....
    Do you have an owners manual? It'll tell you everything in there....
