    I replaced my surpentine belt today. My 06 has 100,200 miles and replacing the belt was cake. I couldn't find a DIY on surpentine belt replacment. But it wasn't that hard. I also made a oppointment at my toyota dealership for a oil change, tran flush, rear end fluid change. They are going to charge me $230.00 for everything (not a bad deal). Truck still running like brand new toyota;)

    Since no set of instructions exist and you've just done it, this is the perfect opportunity for you to write this up for us dummies.

    There have been numerous comments re trans flushing and the typical dealership practice of merely changing the trans fluid. You should make clear to your service people that you expect a proper trans flush, not simply a fluid change. How can you be sure they do it? I don't know. . . .
