I'm having trouble locating my maintenance schedule for my '04, the little blue book that tells you what to do every 5k miles. Is that available online anywhere?
These appear to be model specific -Jeff said:That's just the online version of the schedule that Toyota provides with all their recent trucks and SUV's, I got the paper version with my owner's manual when I bought the RAV. It's fairly general and not RAV-specific, but can give you a good idea of when to perform certain maintenance. There's another similar schedule that Toyota uses for it's cars and minivans.
very true, how do you think places like Jiffy Lube stay in business?nouse4aname said:True, but the 3000 mile figure is a very dated figure that many hold onto just because that's how it's always been or dealers/lube shops do because that gets them more money more often.
Most engines can handle today's dino or semi-syn oil for at least 5k. Full synthetic can go 10k+. But always stick to the manufacturer suggested schedule during warranty. Severe schedule if you make lots of short trips of 15 minutes or less.
