I have a 2004 Highlander, with low miles, about 88k. I am planning on driving it about 2k miles on a trip, and besides the usual oil, filter and wiper change, I am trying to determine what maintenance I should do before the trip. I have been reading about items such as, transmission fluid, differential fluids, timing belt
, transfer case fluid, etc.
JA: When was the last time your transmission fluid was checked? Changed?
Customer: Sept 09, about 43k miles.
JA: Are you fixing your Highlander yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I'm too old for doing that work now. Had a recent oil change, new tires, and air and cabin filters replaced. I did manage to replace the wipers myself.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: I think that is it.
