    How much is a normal price for a 90000 mile service? I'm coming up on it and just want to know how to much to expect to pay.

    Over $700 dollars if you do it at the dealership.

    You probably need a tranny flush also b/c of your high miles. That's $230 on top of the $700.

    Parts are only $250 for name brand good stuff if you were to do it yourself. $130ish if you were to shop around a bit :D.

    Ditto.

    It shouldn't be much more than plugs in addition to routine items that should be done regularly.

    For me, the major cost is diff fluid. Since I have a 4x4, I'm buying 7 quarts instead of 3.

    Oil and filter-$35
    Spark plugs- $36 ($6 each from the dealership. Copper Denso's)
    Diff fluid- $140 (Royal purple is $20/quart vs Mobile 1 is $9/quart)
    Wiper blades-$25
    For me: $235 for a major service plus miscellaneous like drinks, food.
    Someone else $160ish

    My last dealership mailer quoted a major 30, 60, 90k service for $640, but the nickle and dime you to death with inspection and labor.

    My sister went in for the $30 oil change special, and the total came out to $70 b/c of inspection labor cost, fluid disposal cost, and fluid cost.

    Holly shit that gear oil is so expensive where your at. Not to mention if you change your transfer and front diff to the purple synthetic it stays suuuuper clean. I've changed my rear diff twice now, and the second time it was just as clean as when i put it in (prerunner). Not to mention it's not 4wd all the time. You can buy the copper denso's at the parts store instead of toyota, there not anything special. You can stock up on wiper blades at costco when they do 2 for 1 specials.

    Why pay double for Royal Purple over Mobil-1?

    GM's factory LSD lube is nicknamed "Grapejuice" and has a purple tint to it. It is supposedly pretty good, but my experience with Royal Purple motor oil in my motorcycle is far less than stellar. It did not perform any better than Mobil-1 V-Twin or 15w50, and it actually underperformed non-synthetic Castrol GTX 20w50

    I bought royal purple b/c mobile 1 was sold out everywhere I looked and I wanted to keep it fully synthetic.

    Also denso's at the dealership were the cheapest I found vs the part stores.

    Its expensive living in SoCal

    I stick with OEM parts where possible, but I normally buy online.

    Claremont Toyota sticks you with "high book" for parts. Glendora Toyota is always 10-25% lower, so it's worth the drive.

    Been 4 or 5 times that I've stopped at Claremont for parts, got the price, and figured "fukkit, I'll go to Autozone"... then went to Glendora and bought there. I no longer even check Claremont.

    But if I'm planning ahead, I'll buy online from Titus-Will or Dallas.

    And I hear ya' on Mobil-1 availability. They can be spotty. When I bought my Duramax was the same time they decided to reformulate the 5w40 Diesel oil. New stock was delayed by 6 months, while old stock was sold out (and at the same time many M1 oils were empty shelves including my motorcycle oil).
    At 10 quarts, and as much as I was driving the Duramax, it became worth it to pay the $20 and become an Amsoil "preferred customer". Cost was still no better than Mobil-1 OTC, but it was available and I could place an order and it was at my door in 3 days.

    Once I got rid of the Duramax and my company was paying for oil changes on the company 4-Runner, it was no longer worth it to buy Amsoil. I'd just stock up on M1 5w30 and V-Twin for the Rav4 and the bike when I saw it in stock.
    Amsoil is good stuff, but it's not worth the premium over Mobil-1 (refer to the chart above)

    ROCKAUTO, besides shipping the plugs are like $2.50 or something close to that. Same part number too printed on the plugs for the denso's. I can also get NGK at o reilly's
