    I'm not much help here and have limited time...

    Here's an online version of the Factory Service manual. You can look around in there and see if yoiu can locate the filter.

    What transmission do you have? Auto or manual?

    Spark Plugs? When I did my 96 - I went with factory plugs. And only because they were already gapped properly and cost about the same as *the others*.

    I believe the fuel filter is in the tank itself (fuel pump) and doesn't need changing until 100K. Someone correct me if I'm wrong...

    You shouldnt need to do the fuel filter yet. Same with the tranny fluid, just check the level and the color of it, should be a dark redish

    LOL ok gotta remember i work on Fords every day heres what our 30k includes

    oil and filter
    rotate tires
    air filter
    fuel filter
    flush transmission
    throttle body service

    transmission fluid is supposedly good for 100k miles(ws fluid)(unless you tow alot, then you may opt to do it sooner).

    fuel filter is basically non-serviceable(or so i've heard)....and in the tank. and like the tranny fluid....you may opt to do it sooner than recommended(i probably will....i would hate the fuel pump going out after the warranty expries)

    sparks plugs....if you have the 4 banger....you are good til 100k, v6.....plugs should be changed at 30k according to toyota....and if you decide to go with iridiums, they are good for 100k.

    rear diff fluid should also be changed according to toyota(i did mine at 20k and went with mobil1 syn.).....also at 30k, i'll probably clean my throttle body also.

    the rest is basic really.....rotate tires, change oil, check/change air filter if needed, check/change cabin air filter if needed, check/fill fluids as necessary.
