    i have a 12 sport with 95,000 miles. had oil changed this week. service center tells me time to change fluids asked them to note it on receipt course they didn't. sounded like four fluid changes costing 200 a piece. 800-1000 for fluid. i did my plugs after they wanted 180 for around 50. any suggestion will be appreciated.

    Rear diff, front diff, and transfer case are easy to change yourself. Just a matter of unscrewing the drain bolt and then refilling. Use a little hand pump with a hose that screws onto the quart bottles to get the gear oil back in. If it’s a manual transmission, then it’s not much different tthan the others. If it’s auto, it’s bit more involved but can still be done. There is a write up on this site on how to do it, or you could do the other 3 yourself and have Toyota change the auto transmission.

    Just do a search on here for each one, there’s good info and I’m sure after you read through everything you see that’s its something you can do.

    I hope they didn't charge you $200 for an oil change.

    At that mileage I would recommend the coolant as well....there is a drain port on the bottom of the radiator and likely another on the block somewhere (Not sure about the v6) let all the stuff drain out into pans. Close drain plugs and refill with 50/50.
