What are some list of things I should get done? Just hit 64k miles on my 02, just got my spark plugs and ignition coils replaced and did my SMT fluid and transmission fluid last year. Sorry, I’m new to car maintenance

View attachment 78948 Don’t get any kind of oil near the SMT system! Be very careful with terminology here. The SMT system uses SMT fluid (brake fluid). The gearbox uses gear oil - like GL4. If you put any oil into the SMT system you will destroy the entire system. Just ask Ravenol!
my bad, I got the two mixed up. It’s the dot 4? What brand?

No worries. Toyota dealers have screwed it up also! Folks have been using Dot3 or DOT4. I’ve not heard of failures with either one. I use the cheap stuff from Walmart. It is best to mix in 8% Castor Oil (from castor bean) for lubrication. NOT Castrol motor oil! Castor oil is in the pharmacy department at Walgreens.
