    Hi all,

    Need some advice on costs. I went to a local shop here in town and they quuoted me some prices. I would do some of this myself however I am traveling right now and all my tools and such are 3000 miles away. So with that being said here are the prices quoted. Let me know if I am getting robbed.

    Plugs and pcv valve- $143.50
    tranny $134.00 not a complete flush
    rear diff $80
    Coolant flush $104


    Any advice is appreciated.

    Barrett

    Double Din Nav TRD knob AFE Pro Dry S TRD Catback IMYO Mirror bracket LED Backup lights So much more to come
    All of those seem high to me.

    Ill check my last invoice that I had those same items done when i get home, but ill try to remember off the top of my head:

    Plugs (no PCV) was $115
    Tranny Drain and fill was $53
    Rear diff was $33
    Didnt have the coolant done.

    These prices were done at the toyota dealer and are in Canadian Dollars..

    Good luck!

    Are you referring to your 2008 AUTO? How many miles on your truck?

    The AUTO transmission doesn't need servicing for like 100,000 miles. We don't even have dipsticks on these trucks to see the fluid levels.
    Your radiator fluid doesn't need servicing or changed for 100,000 miles.

    You can look up your maintenance schedules in your owners manual or look here:
    http://www.toyota.com/owners/web/pages/resources/owners-manuals

    Other than that....you should change rear diff & front diff oils at the same time. The front diff is spinning just as much as the rear diff is. If you're not at home, costs may vary depending where you are. The best bet is to call around and get quotes from different shops/dealers. But always remember - you get what you pay for.

    Not true, 100 000 miles on factory fluid in Auto is pure BS. If people dotn do maintenance around 60-80 000 miles they will most likely need new transmission.

    That's what TOYOTA recommends..... and the only reason I mentioned it. It's a factory recommendation.

    Whatever you do with your maintenance, is completely up to you.

    They also recommend that it be changed out every 60,000 miles or 72 months (whichever comes first) under special operating conditions like towing/offroad use.
