Replacing fluids

70

Asked by Dec 20, 2014 at 01:41 PM about the 2002 Toyota Tacoma

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car is a 2002 Tacoma with only 28,000 miles . The shop guys tell me I need to replace all fluids, including transmission.  It is an expensive maintenance task. My question is, if the car has only this mileage, why do I need to replace ALL fluids? I am driving in urban areas only.

Here's a maintenance schedule for your truck. http://www.toyota.com/t3Portal/document/omms/MSTOY02_MS0003/pdf/01omsour/2002/schedule/2002sche.pdf I don't know if I'd trust "The shop guys" to do the actual scheduled tasks..... maybe shop around?

I do not know why they tell you to replace all the fluids the only fluid that should be replaced regularly is the engine oil. If you go to your manual it will tell you what other fluids need replacing and when. Which will be at a point of a great deal of more millage then you have now

Go -no RUN-to another shop. There are honest auto mechanics that want your repeat business in the future; instead of the "quick buck" mentality that just wants your $$$ now.
