The Suggested Car Maintenance Schedules

Different parts of your vehicle need to be checked at different rates depending on how much time has passed or how much you’ve driven in the Orland Park area or beyond. Even if you aren’t driving your vehicle much, regular check-ups ensure that there are no major issues. Generally, you can follow these Toyota maintenance schedules:

Every 3 months or 3,000 miles:

  • Automatic transmission, power steering, wiper fluid levels
  • Engine oil and air filter
  • Belts, exhaust, and hoses
  • All lights inside and out
  • Fuel filter
  • Tire pressure, tire tread wear and tear check

Every 6 months or 6,000 miles:

  • Car battery and cables
  • Chassis lubrication
  • Windshield wipers
  • Polish your vehicle

Every 12 months or 12,000 miles:

  • Brake system
  • Coolant levels
  • Transmission fluid levels
  • Steering and suspension
