What do I need for servicing my Prius?

Recommended Posts

I have a 2008 Prius.

Last serviced 10,000 miles ago. 

I think I should have got serviced at 5000 miles?

The car has 137200 miles on the clock right now.

Can someone tell me what needs to get done for servicing and what parts I need?

Previously, the car would have just got basic servicing - like Oil and filter. (The car was inherited from a taxi driver - but got basic servicing done regularly.)

Thanks.

Mainly just Oil and filters like any normal petrol car.

The Battery fans should be cleaned out every few years - plenty of videos on YouTube on how to do this.

There are two coolant circuits - one for the engine and one for the inverter. Considering the age of the car the coolant is probably due a change by now for both, if not done already.

But speak to your Toyota dealer about the Hybrid Health Check and the hybrid system warranty, which can be maintained up to 15 years now. You should be able to get this done separately from servicing.
