Hey all,


So my pathy is hitting 147k soon and I'm looking for some advice on what maintenance I should get done to ensure that this vehicle keeps running as long as possible for me.

I get the oil changed regularly and I just recently replaced the front wheel bearings.

I know I need to get my shocks replaced so any recommendations would be wonderful.


Thanks for all the help guys and gals!

Would you advise I change out my radiator as well. I think mine is still the stock one as well.

Absolutely!....or, at least bypass the radiator's trans cooler. Original radiators will usually have a sticker on the driver's side of the upper radiator tank with one of the following part numbers: 21400-EA215, -EA265 or -EA200.

Man dump that radiator and put a new one in there overall it's just cheep insurance. Around 120,000 my 06 Toyota 4Runner sprung a leak just before I was ready to go on vacation towing my camper. Changed it right out.

How much would that usually run at shop to get done? Or is it simple enough to do at home with minimal tools (living in an apartment)

Shop costs will vary depending on where you live, what brand of radiator they use, etc. A good source for estimates is here:

www.repairpal.com/estimator


As far as the DIY, I found the 2008 model to be a lot easier than the 2006. Book labor time is 3.0 hours. It can be done at home with basic metric tools. The hardest part is maneuvering the radiator with its bolt-on side brackets around the hard lines to the A/C condenser. The A/C condenser also shares the bottom bracket with the radiator, so it needs to be tied up to support it while you R&R the radiator. With the amount of people replacing their radiators, I would imagine there are a number of write-ups and YouTube vids that can be found with a little Googling. Autozone.com also has free repair guides.
