Default What maintenance should I get - 1998 Camry XLE

Hello all,

My 1998 Camry XLE is about to reach 200,000 Km (125,000 Miles). Do you have
any recommendations for what maintenance I should have done? I'm not having
any specific problems, but feel it's time to get fluids replaced, etc.

I want to avoid the garage pressuring me into things I don't absolutely
need.

Thanks,

Grant

would try to help, but fluids should have been replaced long long long
ago.

Last year, I purchased a 2000 Camry LE 4-Cyl with about
175,000 kms. I drove the car for about 1000kms then I had all of the
belts changed (Timing, Alternator, and power steering), replaced the
spark plugs and wires, flushed the radiator, changed the air filter
(that was a mess!!!) replaced the transmission fluid, and had a fresh
oil change done. I would have replaced the battery but it was still
new (There was a date on it). The previous owner said that all of this
was done, but had no receipts to prove it. He may have been telling
the truth and all had been replaced, but there is no harm in having it
done anyways. Besides I'd rather spend about $500.00 bucks doing all
of this then shelling out $2000.00 for a new engine.
After all the work was done, the car seemed to have new
life back in it. It shifted smoother, and the gas mileage increased by
about 2-3 mpg. I still drive the car and it now has well over 200,000
kms on it and drives as good as my parents 2006 Camry.
That being said, you probably should have had some of this
stuff done by now, the belts for sure. Hope this helps!
