Thank you Toyota wants to change all the fluids transmission, frt diff, rear diff, brake fluid and coolant flush I know about the coolant was not sure of the others. Also Very expensive


if you can do this yourself? not to bad, if not look for coupons, the trans 1st on my list!2nd coolant, if the breaks are ok you can wait, also if the axles are not leaking , you can wait on them, hope this helps,
