    Hello everyone, I'm new here.

    2011, 4.6L, V8, double cab, just hitting 100,000 miles:

    Dealer recommended the following: "top engine clean", "front differential service", rear differential service", "transfer case fluid replacement", and "transmission fluid replacement".

    Total cost estimate is $750. They state that the fluids have been found to be dirty, contaminated, and/or discolored. Help me out here, what should I focus on having done? Most of my miles are highway driving, once in awhile I may two a small trailer.

    Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks.

    Not sure what "top engine clean" is but sounds stupid. Did they state what that includes? As far as the differentials and transfer case, these are easy to do yourself and can be done for less than $100. Just look up tutorials on youtube. I would pay to have the transmission fluid replacement done. Hope this helps.

    "top engine clean" has a note that states "found carbon buildup in air induction system". The little research I did makes me think it's crap for $160.

    Unable to do transfer case and differentials myself at this time, I'm working away from home and will eventually be driving 2,500 miles to get home….live in VA, currently working in CA.

    Opinion on letting the transmission and other items wait another 4,000 miles or so???

    Are you running synthetic or reg oil in the diffs?

    Air induction system clean up sounds like a preventive maintenance for the Air Induction Pump and associated system parts to prevent the dreaded 2442code.

    Have never changed, so not sure. I've gone through all my service receipts and do not see any work done on differentials.

    Should have synthetic then. I paid a local tune up shop $50 labor to replace front/rear diff and transfer case gear oil that I provided. Mobil 1 gear oil. Saved a few hundred bucks apparently. Dealer will do the transmission fluid change.

    Differentials should be serviced every 30k. Transmission every 60-90 depending on driving habits. Spark plugs are due at 120k I believe. That top engine clean sounds like a bunch of shit imo. If u want to clean your throttle body, do it. It takes 5 mins. I never sell "efi services" or shit like that. I'll fix it when it breaks or I'll clean it/service it when I have to remove it for other repairs.

    I hadn't heard of that top engine clean either. I know that a lot "tune up" places push the EFI bs flush,etc.

    Can you direct me how to clean the throttle body? Check a repair manual? Look at a online video? Thanks.

    Somebody posted on here a little bit ago about it. I'm sure there are videos.
    Pretty simple though. Remove the intake tube from thottlw body. Disconnect battery. Buy some electrical parts cleaner spray. Use a rag that won't leave stands or lint. And open the butterfly with one hand and spray the rag and wipe it down. Don't spray into the tb. Put it all back together. Not much to it

    This is how's done.

    Here's another.

    Throttle body cleaning

    Decided to clean my throttle body since the last time I was at the dealer they wanted to charge me for it. I have 68k on my truck currently. It's pretty straightforward.

    Loosen band clamp attaching intake to throttle body.

    Remove hoses running to intake

    Unlatch upper airbox

    Pull upper intake off tb and set aside

    Unclip tb sensor

    Remove 4 10mm bolts holding tb to manifold

    Pull tb out enough to Unclip coolant lines. I plugged the lines with golf tees. A little coolant will come out the lower one

    Remove tb and clean. I used a degreaser, you could also use carb cleaner or throttle body cleaner. I didn't have any on hand at the time.

    Saturated and scrub until clean, make sure to open the blade and clean under it too

    Reverse steps to install.

    There is also a screen that is attached to the manifold, it had build up on it to. Just pop it out to clean.



    Throttle body was pretty gunked up, especially on the lower inlet and tips of blade.

    Throttle response seems quicker but that's probably just mental.

    Salutations from the Alamo City. My truck just hit 181,000 miles this morning while driving to work. Good maintenance, upkeep will keep your truck new. Honestly, I never had a top engine clean", "front differential service", rear differential service", "transfer case fluid replacement", and "transmission fluid replacement". Never had none of those mentioned and truck rides as it did when I first drove it off the lot. No issues whatsoever. But then, of course, it all depends it you haul stuff all the time, in that case you should replace the transmission fluid and have the differential service. Thinking of having the transmission fluid change and differential service done at 200,000 miles. I've been running full synthetic oil since 70,000 miles and I change it every 5000 miles.

    Nope. I have not. I took it to the dealer at 140,000 and the mechanic said that I did not need to. Not yet. He said at 200 would be ok. He is my cousin, a Master Mechanic working with Toyotas since 1978. Honestly, like my grandpa used to say, "if it ain't broken, why repair it ". I do check the oils, and fluids, and if I notice any foreign material ( discoloration, metals etc, ) then I would change it now, but there is not.

    I would have done diff and trans for sure. Diff should be done @32k for the first run I believe.

    I think it's how hard you are on your truck, and how much towing you do. Had my differential changed@ 75k and mechanic asked me if wanted it done, because it was clean and very few shavings. Put Amsoil back in. Will change tranny@100k.
