What Happens with a Toyota 100,000 Service

If you’re an owner of a Toyota in St. Peters, MO, then it’s pretty commonplace to be running and using your car or truck well over 100,000 miles. In fact, many Toyota owners make it well past 300,000 before changing their vehicle because they just want something new, not because it reaches the end of its functional life. No surprise, Toyota almost routinely ends up on the top 10 list of the most reliable cars or trucks made every year.

That said, Toyotas don’t magically stay on the road by themselves. Maintenance is a key aspect that helps contribute to their longevity. And if that maintenance is not kept up, then wear and tear starts to take a toll, growing into serious issues over time. And at 100,000 miles, a serious amount of checks and consumable part replacements need to be taken care of to keep your car or truck running right for another 6 figures.

How can Following the Toyota Service Schedule Help my Vehicle?

The 100,000 services listed in your Toyota’s owner’s manual provides a significant amount of checks and replacements for multiple parts of the vehicle’s core systems. Aside from the typical issues such as the oil & filter change, battery change, tire rotations, and air filter change, the 100,000 service also goes through the engine belts and hoses, fluid replacement, transmission changeout, engine coolant change, brake inspection, and brake pad replacement if needed, wiper blade replacement, floor mat check, and computer system diagnostics. There are variations, of course. What is needed on a 4Runner is going to be a bit of a different set of checks and changes versus a Sienna. However, some aspects of maintenance are standard for all Toyotas.

One key factor requires that the Toyota owner has been properly maintaining their vehicle up to the 100,000-mile mark already. If not, then the needs at the 100,000 service is likely going to be more engaged. Fortunately, Toyota mechanics are fully certified and ready to deal with all kinds of issues with their models and brands. It will just take more effort.

How the Timing Belt Plays a Role in Your Vehicle’s 100,000-Mile Service

One of the key changes at the 100,000-mile service is the timing belt change. The timing belt provides an essential connection of the engine’s cam to the crankshaft. That helps keep the pistons running correctly and thousands of rotations at a time. Don’t underestimate this particular service. The timing belt keeps your engine working correctly, and without it, your car ends up a mess in a very short amount of time.

Various Additional Toyota Services Performed at 100,000 Miles

Even the small things matter at 100,000 miles. The cabin air filter is one of the items included in the changes and upkeep, taking care of your internal vehicle air in the passenger cabin. It doesn’t seem like much, but that cabin filter makes a big difference in the air you breathe while driving. It’s an automatic change item at 100,000, along with the spark plugs and rust inspections to the undercarriage and vehicle frame. We also take care of the ball joints and their dust covers, steering linkage assembly, chassis bolt and nut tightening and checks, and differential check for leakage.
