When to Give My Toyota A Tune-Up?

Whether you’re the proud owner of a Camry, a 4-Runner, Yaris, or one of the other fantastic Toyota model vehicles, regular service is an important part of vehicle ownership. Adhering to the recommended service schedule keeps your vehicle running smoothly for a longer time period than without the service. Furthermore, you’ll minimize wear and tear and increase the resale value of the vehicle.

Recommended Oil Change An oil change is a service that every vehicle regular needs to keep the engine running smoothly. Although some manufacturers recommend changing the oil at 3,000 miles, many recommend a change at 6,000 miles or after when synthetic oil is used. Refer to the owner’s manual with your vehicle to learn when to schedule a tuneup, since this can change from one model to another. Most likely, you’ll follow a 15-30-60-90 maintenance schedule.

15,000-Mile Service

The first scheduled tune-up usually occurs at about 15,000 miles, or one-year after purchase. This is a pretty simple tune-up that includes an exterior vehicle inspection, tire inspection and rotation, oil and oil filter change, under the hood inspection of the various vehicle components, and an air filter change. Each of these things will improve the efficiency of the vehicle in one way or another.

  • Oil Change - Drained and Replaced
  • Check All Fluid Levels - Top Up as Needed
  • Tires Rotated and Balanced
  • Check Air Filter - Replace as Needed

30,000-Mile Service

Tire Rotation IntervalsThe next tuneup is at about 30,000 miles. This tune-up is very important and failure to get this service could void the vehicle warranty. The repair technician will provide the same services as provided at the 15,000-mile service, as well as a fuel filter replacement. The transmission fluid is checked and replaced, the coolants replaced, and the power steering fluid is replaced.

  • Many of the Same Services from 15,000 Mile Interval
  • Check Brake Pads - Replace as Needed
  • Suspension and Shock Check
  • Check Fuel Filter - Replace as Needed

60000-Mile Service

The 60,000-mile service includes all of the prior vehicle maintenance services, as well as an inspection of the vehicle’s cooling and ignition systems. It is usually recommended that spark plug replacement happens during this tuneup. Engine coolant should be changed at the 60,000-mile service. Additionally, this tuneup will include inspection and replacement of the brake line system.

  • Check for Wear on Belts and Hoses - Replace as Needed

90,000-Mile Service

At the 90,000-mile service, you'll receive all of the basics provided at each of the prior tuneups, though this one is a lot more thorough than prior services. It is important to provide a more in-depth inspection now, considering it's been a few years since purchasing the vehicle. The goal at this tuneup is to keep the vehicle running efficiently for many more years to come, with as few problems as possible. The tune-up will look for any signs of wear and tear to improve the vehicle's operation.
