Quick tips for a newbie


Recommended Posts

Hi its been just over 24hours now since i last had my hands on some tools and i dont think i can last much longer. I need some help.

I have a 2004 camry sportivo, 

Model : ACV36R - DEMVKQ

Engine : 2AZ - FE

I now have time to play around and have a little fun. Yesterday changed the oil and oil filter. And after seeing how much of an improvement that was im keen for more. Any tips and tricks of things i should do would be really appreciated. Nothing too major atm but all suggestions will greatly appreciated. 

I was thinking gearbox oil next but im a newbie so any advice will help greatly. And if you could tell me what parts, oils, etc. that you use would be very very helpful

Always use good quality, high specification oils. I am now using semi-synthetic and synthetic oils in all of my vehicles.. 

You should find the following URLs of interest.



I have the following items on my regular maintenance list:

1. Clean air filter, throttle body and idle control valve

2. Check/Clean EGR valve

3. Clean PCV valve

4. Replace power steering fluid in the reservoir

5. Check/Clean coolant overflow bottle and replace coolant
