View Full Version : 90000tune-up and timing belt change
10-09-2001, 03:32 PM
wassup everyone. im fairly new to supras, just bought an NA baltic blue mkiv after i totaled my 2000stang GT. i was wondering if it would be better for me to take my car to another shop rather than to a toyota dealer. i heard some horror stories about them not knowing nething about supras and when i asked them how much replacing my timing belt was on a 94 supra, they asked if it was a 4 cylinder!!? oh and i havent reached 90k but wat is included in the 90k tuneup, and wat would u recommend me doing? (oh and im from Orange County/LA if there are ne good places around here) thanks

glad to hear you finally got your head on straight and got a supra over the stang... hehe, just kidding...
i just did 60k service for my car... all fluids, timing belt, new plat. plugs... $580! toyota of Cerritos. The thing is, the Serivce Advisor/Consultant (or whatever they're called), you know, the guys that ask you what's up with the car, "how can i help you today," and start your paperwork. They don't service your car, the mechnics do. if you get a chance, talk to the mechanic. There's a guy, Steve, at Cerritos that's pretty good, I've been going to Cerritos Toyota since I got my car (June '98). I've seen a couple other supra's go in and out of there... so I have a feeling the mechanics at Cerritos have experience with Supras. At 30k, i did a tune up and had the engine flushed... i'll probably do that again at 90k... cost me less than $400 (the paperwork is around here somewhere). Gotta take care of my baby. :D
btw... the timing belt is recommended every 60k miles. if the previous owner has the old paperwork, you should check that out.
good luck... and welcome to the family!

Went to the local import hot rod shop, & although the attending gearhead was not hot on n/a's I have to attest that there is a special quality about them. :D I guess thease other straight line greasers will never know unless they try a real quality car!:cool:
