Toyota Tacoma Maintenance Plan

You may use your Toyota Tacoma for daily driving, or to handle tough jobs around Calhoun. Either way, it’s important to follow a regular Toyota Tacoma maintenance plan. Consider these suggestions from the Service Department at Riverside Toyota!

When you’ve driven your Toyota Tacoma for 5,000 miles, the maintenance it needs includes:

  • Check installation of driver’s floor mat
  • Rotate tires
  • Inspect wiper blades
  • Inspect/adjust all fluid levels
  • Visually inspect brake linings/drums and brake pads/discs

Once you’ve driven 10,000 miles around Cartersville, complete the following on your Toyota Tacoma, in addition to the 5,000-mile interval maintenance:

  • Inspect cabin air filter
  • Replace engine oil and oil filter

Once you hit the 15,000-mile mark in your Toyota Tacoma, add these to your maintenance plan:

  • Inspect steering gear
  • Inspect radiator and condenser
  • Inspect ball joints and dust covers
  • Inspect brake lines and hoses
  • Inspect rear differential oil
  • Inspect engine coolant
  • Inspect steering linkage and boots
  • Inspect exhaust pipes and mountings
  • Torque propeller shaft bolt

Your Toyota Tacoma needs extra care depending on the type of roads you drive on, as well as the temperature in which you drive. For example, after driving on dirty or muddy roads, or streets with melted snow, make sure to:

  • Inspect ball joints and dust covers
  • Inspect steering linkage and boots
  • Inspect engine air filter
  • Replace engine oil and oil filter
  • Torque propeller shaft bolt
  • Torque nuts and bolts on chassis and body

Additionally, towing or heavy vehicle loads mean that you need to have your engine oil and filter replaced every 5,000 miles, as well, along with inspections of the torque propeller shaft bolt and torque nuts and bolts on the chassis and body.
