Toyota corolla: Im planning to give this for servicing

Resolved Question:

I Have a Toyotta Corolla 2007 model. Its 90,000 miles. I'm planning to give this for servicing in Toyotta service centre for 90000 mile service. Please advise what are the things that needs to be done & also do i need to change the timing belt? I'm not aware whether this was done before since I purchased it recetly when it was 75000 miles? Please advise whether i should consult a local mechanic outside ot give the service in toyotta servicing center?

Hi, my name is XXXXX XXXXX 90k service is not that intense, it requires checking alot of things but not alot of replacing, i will post the schedule below, any competant mechanic can do the service, you dont have a timing belt on this motor, you have a timing chain, and it doesnt require replacement,Tim

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?

Expert:  Tim Mohr 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
