Rav 4.1 '99 - 55,000 Mile (90,000km) Service


Recommended Posts


I'm looking to service my 1999 Rav 4.1 at it's 55k mile (major) service.

I've already:

-changed engine Oil (15W40) and filter

-changed air filter

-changed fuel filter (under bonnet only)

-changed cam belt

I understand I now need to:

-change transmission and differential Oil (combined at front?) with 75W90 GL4 or 5 in both gearbox AND rear diff (correct me if I'm wrong!) - Does anyone know what quantities to put in or have any schematics?

-change spark plugs

-regrease steering mechanism (?)

- tighten drive shaft bolts

Am I right?? Have I missed anything?? :)


PS not trying to put anyone out of a job but i'm currently staying in France and was quoted 380 Euros for a service by Toyota France....errr...no yer reet!

Hmmm :g:

Is that an advert I wonder? I'll assume for now that you've just cut and paste that in HEMI and given how helpful you are will think about that for a bit longer but it might be better to pm those kind of details regarding you contact address ;)
