Where Yo Turn?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I'm new to the group and looking for advice on doing the maintenance on a 98+ GS 300.I have worked on cars all my life but never on a car so complex.Has anyone done the 60-90k tuneup? and if so what does it entail?

thanks

Scott

I would do everything but the timing belt! Plugs go with the iridiums/filters fuel & air/trans fluid/rear diff oil/ timing belt/drive belt/belt tensioner for timing belt/cam and crank seals/waterpump/thermostat/coolant flush and fill/power steering flush and fill/brake fluid flush and fill with dot4 or 5.i/oil filter/pcv valves/ that should be the majority of it. I would also clean the throttle body with carb cleaner and drop in some fuel injector cleaner in the tank. Do a water flush for carbon buldup in the exhaust chamber.

No! Get a shop manual and you should be okay if you have done them before. It's a good way to mess up your engine if you're not experienced.
