Default Service to get at 90,000 miles

Hey there guys.... I just rolled through 92k on the odometer about a week ago, and I am looking to do service on the motor and everything when the winter breaks in the next month or so.

I'm just wondering, what should I look at getting done for a 90k tuneup? I don't have the recommended service manual, so I don't know what Toyota recommends doing. Also, since I purchased this car used at about 75k miles, I'm not sure if whoever had it before did the 60k mile tuneup. So assuming it wasn't done, can you guys fill in this list for me? :

To do at 90k maintenance:
1.
2.
3.


What should have been done at 60k maintenance:
1.
2.
3.



Thanks in advance all! :)

How about hoses and belts , replace anti freeze , thermostast add water wetter for protection , but if your car is 4 years old or older and you havent replace them now would be a good time . Definitly flush all the brake fluid on your next brake change :yo:

all good suggestions, but i was always told that if the brake fluid was clean, no need to flush it...does it loose any properties over long use?

it certainly doesn't hurt to replace the brake fluid tho, if he's got a lot of miles? i've got almost 200K on the truck and never flushed

i work at a lexus dealership and at 90k we do LOF,brake fluid flush (mainly because brake fulid absorbs water so to help keep brake lines from rusting out) coolant flush, some models get new plugs, waterpump, cabin and engine air filters,tire rotation, & timing belt.

Brake fluid absorbs water which rusts your lines and water also boils at a low temp forming bubbles and you get brake fade which is not nice. Also can go acidic after a long period which also eats lines kinda like coolant may look good but that is not a true indication.

I just flushed my mr2 hydraulic clutch and damn that was disgusting the reservoir looked alright but once I pumped some fluid it was all black and you could smell the acidity so I pumped it all right out and then flushed some clean fluid through and it was sweet. The brakes I'm going to do the same soon. Clean fluid can be the difference between good brakes and great brakes.

Thanks guys! I appreciate the suggestions. I havn't used the search button for this next question yet, but since we're on a roll here I figured someone could provide an appropriate answer.... Does anybody have/will make a DIY walkthrough on performing each of the fluid flushes? I really want to do the power steering and brake fluid flush, and the tranny fluid too if I can figure out how.

As of now, (from me doing them once I got the car) here is a list of the things I've done already:
- Replaced spark plugs
- Replaced battery
- Replace Serp belt
- Performed multiple oil changes

Things I will probably look at to do soon (as its 10 degrees outside and too cold to do all the flushes until summer):
- replace air filter in the cabin (where is this one located? behind the glovebox I'm assuming?)
- replace air intake filter
- another oil change in the future
- clean MAF / replace

Also, I noticed that I get an audable "Ticking" noise from my MAF sensor area once my car warms up..... does this happen on anybody elses car? This only happens when the car is in park, and it has reached the operating temperature.... I get this tick noise that is NOT rpm dependent, and as soon as I put the car in drive it goes away.

Good info with the brake lines i didnt know that...will have to check mine.

I have heard of ppl getting the "ticking" but i think it comes from part of the vaccum system i know the Corolla and the TC have both been known to have this loud "ticking" sound while idling

Is this anything to be concerned about?

If I put an intake system on it, the vac line would still route to the intake pipe (as its currently on the bottom portion of the Air filter box with the vac tube. But do you think the ticking would go away? I just can't figure out how the ticking could be related to the vac system... lol.

Its the Evaporative Emission (EVAP) Control System, and you are right it should be ticking while idiling.
Its purpose is to control the fuel vapors coming from your fuel tank.....

Yea, the air filter is behind the glovebox - youve gotta pull off the glovebox and then the little black cover over it, then you'll see it.
Are you a manual or auto? I can walk you through a trans fluid change in a manual if you'd like

I want to flush the other stuff too just have to wait for it to warm up some....too cold out.... brrrrr
