Please Advise Can I give this in Toyotta dealer servicing or mechanic outside.

 

Also let me know How much does it cost & I will ask the mmechanic to do all these things that u have given above.

 

Also on timing chain let me know if anything needs to be done or ask mechanic to inspect?

 

Please advise in detail since i do not have any idea of this service?

Toyota Mechanic: Tim Mohr, ASE MASTER TECH replied 7 years ago
this can be done by any service center, or the dealer, the cost will be more at the dealer, at a indapendant shop this service should cost around 150 dollars, there is nothing to inspect on the timing chain or check,Tim
