Advice on maintenance

Recommended Posts

Morning

Im new to the lexus is200 (2002) and hope the members on the forum can offer somee advice.

Due to the car being old and actually in very good condition, I ant to carry out some servicing. So the following is what I think needs to be done:

  • Engine oil and filter
  • gearbox oil
  • diff oil
  • coolant
  • brake and clutch fluid
  • Probably good idea to strip brakes and re-grease

For now this is all I can think maintenance wise. The only other thing I wanted to enquire on was swapping springs on the car as it is an SE spec. I believe the struts are the same on both variants so its just a direct swap. However I wanted to know about spacers. I would like to put a set on the the rears but ones that are officially for lexus. 

 

Any help will really be appreciated

 

Thanks

For a service, I'd do spark plugs and air filter as well. If the gearbox fluid is clean (red'ish colour, not burnt brown colour) then i wouldn't bother changing it.

You won't find any "official" Lexus spacers, only ones that will fit a Lexus.

Thank you far the advice.

Another thing I forgot to ask was the brands of the service items.

I need to know which brand to choose for the following:

  • air filter
  • oil filter
  • oil (although Im inclined to use mobil 1 or castrol)

There is a small filter in the banjo bolt on the oil pipe to the VVT just take the bolt out and remove the filter clean out and refit
