2011 aurion services missed.

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

Looking at a 2011 aurion with 28,000 klms which has had the free service and one at 11,000 klms but no other services since. Whats the feeling guys do you think you would get any sludge build up in that time by missing 2 services.

Regards Pinpointa.

In my opinion, I think that you are looking for a almost new car so I think there would be no issue, also because its a toyota and they are designed to last in the most extreme conditions. If that would have happened with a VW I would recommend you to buy that car, those cars are pretty sensitive in terms of servicing. I think you could buy the car, make an engine flush (hire a professional if you don't want to hydrolock your engine), and fill it with fresh clean oil and you would be good to go. Hope this helps you!

I've done something that shocking with a previous car, when I finally got around to dropping the oil at about 18k there was no sludge.

Best thing to do is check it out yourself, or even get one of those RAC guys who'll do a once-over for you.

Slack enough to leave it unserviced for that long could also mean slack enough to have skipped on anything else that might have come up.

17,000km's done on modern (pehaps genuine) oil. I've seen plenty of 15,000km engine oil changes and no sludge.

Should be right, right?
