Recommended Service Maintenance Intervals For Your Toyota
Every vehicle needs regular maintenance. But how often should you bring your Toyota to our service center in Arlington for a checkup? Consult the following service maintenance intervals to keep your car in the best possible condition, and then schedule an appointment at Family Toyota of Arlington as needed.
Every 3 months
If you use conventional oil and drive often, get your Toyota car’s motor oil and oil filter changed. This is also a good time to check the wiper blades, battery, and cables, and to give the condition of critical components like brakes and tires a quick inspection.
Every 6 months
Rotate the tires to help extend their lifespan. Get the exhaust system checked, and test the charge of the battery under the hood. Get your Toyota washed and waxed to protect the bodywork from rusting.
Get both air filters changed to keep particles out of the engine and the cabin. Get your car’s brakes thoroughly inspected as well as the suspension system. Have the coolant flushed and replaced.
Every 2 years
This is a good time to look at the ignition system, fuel filter, and transmission fluid on your Toyota. The interval depends on your driving habits, but two years is a good starting point.
Your car’s battery should be replaced every 3-5 years and the tires every 6-10 years. Other long-term service items include the differentials, timing belt, and transfer case fluid.
Take the hassle out of car maintenance by leaving it up to the professionals. Schedule a service appointment every three months at Family Toyota of Arlington, and our technicians will handle the rest.
